Signals from the WFP

The Brooklyn chapter of the Working Families Party voted last night to “send an expression of support” to Yvette Clarke, a spokesman for the state party, Alex Navaro, confirmed.

Which is weird since the WFP already has a candidate in that race.

Anyway, Navaro explained it wasn’t a formal endorsement because “that can only be made at the party’s state committee or executive committee.”

In one sense, it shows Clarke reaching outside her base of Caribbean women. But critics could see this as contingency plan.
