De Blasio Calls and Mails the Sharpton Endorsement

Here’s a robocall and mailer Bill de Blasio is sending out highlighting his African-American support.

The robocall was recorded by Kirsten John Foy, director of the Criminal Justice Initiative at the National Action Network. Foy says, “Reverend Sharpton, various clergy, community activists, advocates and I are supporting Bill de Blasio for the position of New York City public advocate.”

The call ends with Foy saying, “Thank you for your time, and God bless.”

The mailer, which Foy refers to in the call, is here. It prominently features Sharpton, and includes endorsement statements from Representatives Yvette Clarke, Ed Towns and Charlie Rangel.
