Bernie Sanders Enters the 2020 Presidential Race

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to endorse Bernie Sanders’ bid for the Oval Office, instead saying he’s hasn’t ruled out his own 2020 run for president.

“I think Bernie did an incredible service for this country in his campaign in 2016, and it fundamentally changed the debate,” de Blasio said of the Vermont senator during a news conference in Brooklyn on Tuesday. “I think we’re in a new situation here. There’s obviously a different dynamic, and I think everyone should assess the current situation we’re in.”
