At an endorsement ceremony for City Council candidate Josh Skaller in Park Slope this morning, former presidential front-runner Howard Dean admitted he got himself into a little bit of trouble in the Democratic primary in the 39th District.
After a rousing introduction and brief speeches by Dean and Skaller, the first question was, surprisingly, about Skaller’s opponent in the race, Brad Lander. It seemed that Dean had endorsed one too many candidates.
“Well, yes, thank you, get right to the point,” Dean said with an uncomfortable laugh.
Dean explained that he met Skaller at a fund-raiser a few months ago, and—given Skaller’s work on his campaign and his involvement with Democracy for New York, which was derived from Dean’s Democracy for America organization—he agreed to endorse Skaller.
