Bill De Blasio Holds Off On 2020 WH Announcement

The New York Daily News reports:

He’s gone from late to overdue. Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed Monday that he will not announce his 2020 presidential bid this week after all, despite insiders’ widespread belief that he was planning to take the plunge.

“It’s not the night, no,” de Blasio said on NY1 when host Errol Louis asked if he planned on breaking the news. “And not the week.”

“There was a story that assumed some specific thing that never was and you can’t have an announcement before there’s a decision,” de Blasio said, admitting that he’s still deciding. “I think that’s normal, it’s a big decision, obviously.”
