Who are prominent New Yorkers endorsing for president?

It’s early, but the endorsements are starting to roll in.
June 17, 2019

As the 2020 presidential race fills up with candidates, New York’s elected officials and other public figures are starting to offer endorsements.

Two New York elected officials – U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio – are in the mix. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ruled out a run now that former Vice President Joseph Biden has officially joined the fray.

Are New Yorkers waiting to see how the large field shakes out? Only time will tell.

As the candidates lay out their agendas and begin to show their fundraising and polling prowess, City & State will continue to keep an eye on endorsements. Check our endorsement tracker regularly to find which candidates are getting support from elected officials, unions, organizations and others are supporting.
