“Mayor de Blasio is among my top four choices for president and the only male human being who is on that list,” Steinem said at a Tuesday news conference, according to local New York City outlet Patch.
The activist did not clarify who her three female choices for president are, although she has a long list to choose from. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) and author Marianne Williamson are all vying for the Democratic presidential nomination.
De Blasio announced that he was running for president earlier this month, joining more than 20 other Democrats who are also running for president. The two-term NYC mayor told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that his campaign will “put working people first.”
“I say it very bluntly, there is plenty of money in this world, and there’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands,” de Blasio said. “All Americans deserve that kind of opportunity to live a better life.”
