It’s forecast to be a cold day on Jan. 1, but Mayor de Blasio will be basking in the Bern.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will swear de Blasio in for his second term as mayor, City Hall announced Wednesday.
More recently, the mayor has cozied up to Sanders, who traveled to New York to ride the subway with the mayor, back his hopes for a longshot tax of millionaire’s to fix the subways, and endorse his re-election bid.
“Bill de Blasio is the weather vane — he knows which way it’s blowing,” Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf said. “Centrism is dead. Long live de Blasio and progressivism.”
While many would argue the Clintons gave de Blasio his start in politics, four years later, they’re on the outs in the party — and it is Sanders who de Blasio sees as the torchbearer of progress politics, Fordham professor Christina Greer said.WillyT, Rocco, NothingcleverjustRay and 16 othersLand of Enchantment, closeupready, xynthee, snot, Pastiche, eridani, daleanime, pacalo, alcina, LiberalElite, Ejbr, frylock, PennLawyer, Charles, ThouArtThat, caliny like this#CalExit #Trumpdoesn'tpaytaxeswhyshouldwe
