When it comes to the progressive Left, there are figures like Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Yet, at a more local level, you cannot ignore New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is running for a second term this year.
The mayor has been at the center of controversy, however, especially when it comes to the city’s law enforcement community. Over the summer, NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia was shot and killed while sitting in her RV-style command post during the Fourth of July weekend by Alexander Bonds who was later shot and killed by police.
