De Blasio’s Wife” Sanders ‘Getting Desperate’

Charlene McCray, wife of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, is supporting Hillary Clinton and went on CNN to stump for the candidate ahead of tonight’s big debate.

“I think the tone [of the debate] will be respectful,” she said.

“But I think that Bernie’s getting a little desperate, so I expect that we’ll hear the volume pumped up a little bit,” she added.

“Hillary’s a great candidate,” she went on, “I expect that they’re really going to be addressing some serious issues tonight.”

The Hill reports:

She said in response to a question about a Sanders rally Wednesday night that attracted 27,000 people that she doesn’t see  an “enthusiasm gap” between the former secretary of State and the Vermont senator.

“I’m really happy to see this enthusiasm and all the support from all those people. It just shows that people are engaged, they’re involved,” she said.

She said Clinton is doing “very well.”

“She’s got a bold vision and people are really ready to support her,” she said. 

Clinton holds a 13-point lead over Sanders in the RealClearPolitics average of polls five days before voters cast ballots in New York.
