“Let’s keep this fight going, ’cause we proved change can happen in New York,” de Blasio says in the video.
“The news comes as Gov. Kathy Hochul’s lead in the Democratic primary for governor of New York grew to over 30 points beyond her closest competitor, according to a new poll, indicating his previously expected gubernatorial bid would have been a steep climb,” the New York Post Reports.
