Dante de Blasio
Dante de Blasio has been named one of Time magazine’s 16 most influential teenagers of 2013. The campaign ad featuring the teen and his trademark Afro certainly helped dad, Bill, get elected mayor. But, it doesn’t stop there.
Dante’s Afro seemed to take on a life of its own during the mayoral race after the Brooklyn Tech junior appeared in a campaign ad for his father.
Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio was on the defensive Tuesday, explaining his support for the socialist government of Nicaragua and a honeymoon in Cuba that was so secret, he never told his kids.
After vowing to stay out of the mayoral race, Gov. Andrew Cuomo rushed to the defense of Democratic candidate Bill de Blasio Sunday.
The latest Quinnipiac University poll of likely Democratic voters shows de Blasio at 43 percent.
