De Blasio to announce 2020 bid on ‘Good Morning America’

Mayor Bill de Blasio will appear on “Good Morning America” Thursday, where he’s expected to officially announce his quixotic run for the White House.

He will then travel to Iowa after his appearance to stump for votes.

The Hawkeye State was a field of broken dreams last time Democrat de Blasio visited in February as he explored a presidential bid.

He drew crowds of fewer than 50 people, including one dozing attendee in Des Moines and chin-scratching comments like this one from Sioux City resident Vladimir Landman.

“I’ll be honest — I’m not 100% sure what he’s doing here,” said Landman who joined just 24 other people to hear de Blasio speak on Feb. 23.

This Friday De Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, will meet with the Asian Latino Coalition at a downtown coffee shop in Des Moines, according to event organizer Mitch Henry.

He may also meet with Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie and stop by Roosevelt High School, Henry said.

De Blasio is expected to continue on to South Carolina Saturday while his wife returns to New York.

He’ll go to Columbia and then Charleston on Sunday before flying back north for his son Dante’s graduation at Yale.

McCray already traveled to South Carolina in March with her husband as part of his visits to early primary states before he decided to run.
