New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio Joins 2020 Presidential Election
De Blasio announced his candidacy in a YouTube video this morning.
He is now the 23rd Democratic candidate to join the race, now just nine months before the first votes will be cast.
The two term mayor became the first Democratic candidate to be re-elected in New York in more than three decades.
However, De Blasio has come under some fire in the New York press corps.
He is expected to speak further with reporters in Manhattan later today.
