NEW YORK (AP) — The Democratic race for president could be getting another candidate. The mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has been considering a run for months and is expected to announce a decision this week.
He's booked an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" ahead of travel to Iowa on Thursday and events there and in South Carolina on Friday. Both states are among the handful that cast the first votes in the Democratic primary.
Polls in New York City show little enthusiasm for a de Blasio campaign for the White House. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found 76% of New York City voters say they believe de Blasio shouldn't run.
De Blasio has said he believes he has a message that can resonate with Americans.
