2020 Dems–Another One Bites The Dust

Slowly but slow the Dem field of candidates is getting smaller….the newest candidate to end his faltering campaign is the Mayor of NYC, Bill DeBlasio…..

Bill de Blasio’s 2020 campaign for president is over. New York City’s mayor called it quits on Friday, telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe program that “I feel like I’ve contributed all I can to this primary election, and it’s clearly not my time,” per Politico. De Blasio said the “central reason” he’s out is his inability to meet the minimum requirements to qualify for televised debates. “The bar is so high so early that for a lot of us, clearly, some of my fellow chief executives, governors couldn’t make that cut,” he said.

De Blasio, 58, says he will return to New York City to focus solely on wrapping up his second term as mayor. He is ineligible to run for a third term, but in an essay at NBC News, he writes that “fighting for working people and ensuring that New York City remains the vanguard of progressivism will continue to be my missions.” An analysis at Vox points out that de Blasio had a near-impossible task trying to compete against two other “big-name progressives,” Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

As my tradition for the 2020 election when someone leaves the campaign trail…..I will let Queen show them the political door…..exit stage left………

  1. Fight for the citizens of New York ? He has undermined the entire social infrastructure for New Yorkers as a sanctuary city (in defiance of federal law). Free health care for illegals and free tuition too. These policies give every needy New Yorker a tinier piece of the pie.

  2. Low crime ? Former AG Sessions had to create a special task force to fight MS-13 occupation of NYC and Long Island. Not talking about immigrants. All legal are welcome as lawful with delight for their newly acquired citizenship as fellow Americans. Talking about illegals getting benefits which stress the already stressed and underfunded welfare system. Immigration and welfare really don’t have much of a cross reference communication. DeBlasio’s (and all sanctuary cities and states) financial pie does not get bigger but the tiny slices available for qualified recipients get smaller and veterans remain homeless. . I’m second generation as mother’s side from Sicily and father’s side from Rome. I fully support a controlled and well managed immigration protocol . We take in 1.2 million a year I think under legal procedures. They are a valuable talent pool and the expanded gene pool also elevates our population’s abilities.

    1. AG Sessions was feeding the public a line….Carl if your ancestors tried to come today they would be crapped on……MS-13 is an LA gang….but I am sure that they have branched out from the origins…..chuq
