Piers Morgan Live: Bill de Blasio on his hopes as mayor

Last night, “Piers Morgan Live” welcomed mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio for a live, primetime interview.

Joined by actress Cynthia Nixon, de Blasio listened proudly as his endorser sung his praises:

“I’ve known him fighting in the trenches for public schools and for public school funding and to fight back budget cutbacks. For me, there is no other candidate that is going to, you know, change the course of the last 12 years and create a fairer and more equitable New York for everybody,” said the “Sex and the City” actress. “There was never any choice in my mind.”

Referencing another, slightly more controversial Democratic candidate, Morgan asked Nixon if the “subtle charms of Anthony Weiner” have appealed to her.

The actress responded:

“I feel like in a race that’s been marked by scandal and really small ideas, in Bill de Blasio, we have a guy with big ideas who’s a real game changer … it’s so welcome and so overdue,” Nixon told Morgan.
