“There’s a lot of states ahead,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on MSNBC late Monday night from Iowa, where he spent the weekend campaigning for Hillary Clinton in her bid to become the Democratic nominee and next President of the United States.
And de Blasio is right – there are 49 more states and the District of Columbia to vote before the primary season is over. New York will be the 37th state to hold a vote when April 19 comes around.
As de Blasio spoke, it was still unclear if Clinton or Bernie Sanders had prevailed in the first vote of the primary – Iowa caucus goers split down the middle between the two – with Martin O’Malley garnering a few votes and deciding to suspend his campaign.
On the Republican side, Ted Cruz won, with Donald Trump coming in second and Marco Rubio third.
It is unclear whether there will still be a race on either side of the aisle when voting comes to New York. Click here for the full primary and caucus calendar.
