AP News Source: NYC Mayor To Endorse Hillary Clinton

According to a source with knowledge of the decision, New York City Mayor and liberal powerbroker Bill DeBlasio is going to endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

The former Secretary of State and senator from New York could stand to gain from the endorsement as Clinton is fending off Vermont senator Bernie Sanders from her left flank in the Democratic Party primary.

The Associated Press reports that a spokesman for Clinton “says the candidate’s and mayor’s staffs have held discussions about the endorsement.”
