The leadership of the state Democratic Committee on Friday endorsed Rep. Grace Meng and Assemblyman Michael Blake for top posts at the Democratic National Committee.

Both were endorsed by New York Democratic Chairman and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and state Vice Chairwoman Christine Quinn, the former New York City Council speaker.

“Now more than ever, we need leaders at the Democratic National Committee who will continue the fight for social and economic justice, take on entrenched special interests in Washington and work to unify communities across the country,” Brown said. “Congresswoman Grace Meng and Assemblyman Michael Blake are the clear and best choices to serve as DNC Vice Chairs, and I am honored to endorse them for these distinguished positions. Working together, we will advance the core tenets of the Democratic Party and build on the strong progress we have achieved for all Americans.”

Meng, a Queens congresswoman and former member of the Assembly, is running for re-election as vice chair.

“I am humbled to receive the support of Chair Byron Brown and Vice Chair Chris Quinn,” Meng said. “The New York State Democratic Party’s leadership is standing up for the middle class in areas covering rural upstate farms to bustling suburbs and the biggest city in our nation.”

Blake, a Bronx lawmaker and former aide to President Barack Obama, is running for the post for the first time.

“I am so grateful to receive the endorsement of the New York State Democratic Committee in my campaign for DNC Vice Chair, and even more excited by the unified consensus behind my #LeadershipForTomorrow vision,” Blake said. “The New York State Democratic Party is the gold standard for state parties to follow, and I thank Governor Cuomo, Mayor Brown, and Speaker Quinn for their endorsements and for their leadership on the local, state, and national levels, which have made New York State the progressive capital of the country.”
