Rep. Nadler, Manhattan politicians to endorse Stringer for mayor

Rep. Jerrold Nadler and several other Manhattan elected officials are endorsing Scott Stringer for mayor.

Stringer, the city’s comptroller, is a longtime political ally of Nadler, who serves as chairman of the House of Representatives’ powerful Judiciary Committee.

The official announcement, which is expected to come Sunday, will also include endorsements from state Sen. Robert Jackson and Assembly members Richard Gottfried and Linda Rosenthal.

“Scott Stringer is a longtime champion for the West Side — from his days as a young reformer in the Assembly to his bold leadership as Manhattan borough president to his groundbreaking work as comptroller,” Nadler said. “He’s never been afraid to take on the status quo and rewrite the rules — literally — to give New Yorkers the representation they deserve.”

Stringer described Nadler as a “mentor.”

“He’s an example for all public servants,” Stringer said. “I’m lucky to have him by my side in every challenge.”
