New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed a crowd of just 15 people in Cedar Rapids, Iowa over the weekend; discussing a range of issues from immigration to his plans on raising taxes for wealthy Americans.
“Mayor Bill de Blasio pitched his presidential dreams to a crowd of about 15 likely Democratic voters at an event Sunday morning in Cedar Rapids, Iowa,” reports the New York Post. “With more than enough empty space to accommodate his 6-foot-5 frame, the quixotic candidate took the floor at Parlor City Pub to a smattering of applause from the sleepy brunch set.”
“Everything should be about our families, our lives, what everyday people are going through, what working people are going through,” De Blasio told a handful of attendees.
