NEW YORK CITY -- Just before 6:30 Thursday morning, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, threw his hat into the ring for the 2020 Presidential primary election.

Mayor De Blasio will now be joining the nearly two dozen other candidates already vying for the democratic nomination.

The two-term mayor hopes his record of universal pre-kindergarten, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour and overseeing a drop in crime to an all-time low, will appeal to voters nationwide.

Following this announcement, de Blasio now plans to head out on the campaign trail, making stops in both Iowa and South Carolina.
