From the Morning Memo:

The Working Families Party on Thursday evening voted to endorse the Democratic incumbents running for citywide offices, including Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The mayor, running for a second term, for now faces a relatively easy path to the Democratic nod amid speculation he would be challenged from rival Democrats, including Comptroller Scott Stringer, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz or Rep. Hakeem Jeffries.

The labor-backed WFP also gave its endorsement to Stringer’s re-election as comptroller and Public Advocate Letitia James.

“With Trump and Republicans in full control in Washington, New York City has the opportunity to show the entire world that there is a better way,” said Bill Lipton, New York State Director of the Working Families Party. “Mayor de Blasio, Public Advocate James, and Comptroller Stringer have been leading in the fight to resist Trump and to build a city that works for all of us. We’re excited to continue fighting alongside them.”

For now, those primary challenges to the mayor have been staved off, though some may be waiting to see the outcome of multiple investigations into de Blasio’s political activities and fundraising methods.
