Who are prominent New Yorkers endorsing for president?

So far, only a few have weighed in.
March 15, 2019

As the 2020 presidential race fills up with candidates, New York’s elected officials and other public figures will eventually begin offering endorsements. Two House Democrats from New York, Reps. Kathleen Rice and Sean Patrick Maloney, jumped out of the gate and endorsed former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke on the same day he announced his candidacy.

No one from New York has yet endorsed U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, the one Democrat from the state who has announced her candidacy. Are New York delegates still waiting to see if Gov. Andrew Cuomo – or even New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio – will announce a bid? Or are they just waiting to see how the remarkably 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.
