Bill DeBlasio says He's a Bernie Sanders fan, Will skip HRC kickoff. [View all]

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday he will not attend Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign kickoff rally on Roosevelt Island Saturday.

Speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon, de Blasio, a friend and former campaign manager for Hillary Clinton, confirmed earlier reports that he swill not attend the rally, since he is still “waiting to hear her larger vision to addressing income inequality.”

The progressive mayor also indicated he’s a big fan of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who’s challenging Hillary for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. “I’ve always liked what I heard from Bernie Sanders,” de Blasio said.
