Billionaire liberal financier George Soros endorsed Public Advocate Bill de Blasio Tuesday for mayor of New Yory City.
“I am endorsing Bill de Blasio for Mayor because I believe he has the talent, vision and ability to lead New York City,” Soros wrote in his endorsement, which de Blasio posted on his campaign website. “As Public Advocate, Bill de Blasio has promoted concrete policy changes that would mean far fewer innocent New Yorkers are subjected to demeaning police stops while at the same time maintaining reductions in crime.”
