De Blasio Files Initial Paperwork Enabling Run For Gov

CBS News reports:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is one step closer to possibly running for Governor of New York. De Blasio filed paperwork with the New York State Board of Elections last week requesting the creation of the New Yorkers for a Fair Future committee.
