New York — Today, New York City mayoral candidate Maya Wiley received an endorsement from Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman, the Working Families Party, Assembly Members Davila and Gallagher, State Senator Salazar, and District Leader Nemir-Olivares.

Senator Warren said: “We need a fighter, a progressive changemaker, and a woman with plans to lead New York City — that’s why I am proud to endorse Maya Wiley! Join me in supporting Maya’s historic campaign for New York City Mayor.”

“Senator Warren is a progressive titan. She is a visionary who combines shrewd policymaking with an eye for equity,” said Maya Wiley. “Every single day, Senator Warren fights to keep big banks in check, takes on rising student debt, sounds the alarm on expanding big tech, and advocates for working Americans. As the first female senator from Massachusetts, she knows something about the value of shattering the glass ceiling. I am honored to have Senator Warren join my movement. With her support, we will win this election, and bring the change that New York City deserves.”
