Who are prominent New Yorkers endorsing for president?

So far, only a few have weighed in.
May 3, 2019

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

Only one person from New York U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the one Democrat from the state who has announced her candidacy. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ruled out a run now that former Vice President Joseph Biden has officially joined the mix.

Are New York delegates still waiting to see if or New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will announce a bid, which he’s expected to do by the end of May? Or are they just 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.
