Mayor De Blasio Expects To Be In Democratic Debate


When the Democratic candidates for president hold their first debate later this month, Mayor Bill de Blasio expects to be on the stage.

He said he received a text message from Chair of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez that said ‘you’re going to be in.”

The mayor said based on the information that’s publicly available, he meets the threshold required by the DNC to qualify.

“I want to see the final announcement from the DNC [today] but every indication we’ve been given is that I will be in,” de Blasio said.
