Bill de Blasio ends his 2020 presidential campaign

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped out of the 2020 presidential campaign on Friday, ending a campaign he waged in the shadow of better-known progressive candidates.

The mayor, who had announced his campaign seeking the Democratic nomination for president in May, made the announcement on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show. "It's clearly not my time, so I'm going to end my presidential campaign".

The mayor's own wife told reporters earlier this year that the timing was "not exactly right" for a campaign, but launch a campaign to become president of the US de Blasio did.

And those might start getting veeerrrry specific depending on who is in office and who might be seeking office at any time. They said in the Clean Air Act that allows the federal government to revoke the state's authority once it's been granted.


While he did make the first two primary debates in June and July, his polls and fundraising weren't enough to qualify him for the September faceoff.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, reveled in news of de Blasio's departure from the race, tweeting, albeit sarcastically, that it was "the biggest story in years". "New York did not send its best to Washington in this case".

"Sometimes it's just not your time, and that's OK", de Blasio, 58, told reporters. "NYC is devastated, he's coming home!" the President wrote on Twitter.

When de Blasio took office in 2014, he seemed briefly poised to become a leading voice for an emerging left wing of the Democratic Party. Protesters, upset that Mr.de Blasio had refused to fire the police officer who placed Eric Garner in a chokehold before he died, interrupted both a national debate and a CNN town hall where the mayor was a participant. "If we don't, this is an election that could go the other way", he said. A Siena College poll from earlier this week put de Blasio below 1%, meaning even people in his home state of NY didn't want him to be president. Turns out voters around the country equally lacked enthusiasm for the mayor.

"I think it's a genuine set back", Mr. Stringer, who plans to run for mayor in 2021, said in an interview. De Blasio said he did not know that the slogan "Hasta la victoria siempre!" was associated with Guevara, a leader of the Cuban Revolution who is reviled by much of Miami's Cuban population.
