Who are prominent New Yorkers endorsing for president?

Elizabeth Warren is pulling away from the pack, at least in New York.
September 19, 2019

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren may not be a New Yorker, but she showed she’s a political force to be reckoned with in the Empire State.

During a rally on in Washington Square Park on Monday, Sept. 16, the presidential contender rolled out endorsements from state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, Assemblywoman Yuh Line Niou and the Working Families Party. It’ll be months before the first votes are cast in the Democratic presidential primary, but Warren is shaping up to be the candidate to beat when it comes whipping up support among elected officials past and present in New York City.

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.
