NY Democrat Supported By Bill De Blasio, Abandoned By National Democrats

Democrats have all but abandoned Vincent Gentile in his bid for Congress, though Gentile still has the support of the wildly unpopular liberal mayor Bill De Blasio.

Gentile’s prospects are so grim that the DCCC does not see “any victory for the Democrats in this special election.” Despite the fact that he will not get any financial assistance from national Democrats, Gentile swears the door for help is “not fully closed.”

Clearly, Gentile is in denial of his abandonment by Democrats, even though he is “almost certainly running this congressional race on his own.”
