Political Trivia: Bill De Blasio

November 6, 2013


This piece of trivia concerning the newly elected major of New York, Bill De Blasio, tickled me as I so loved The West Wing.

But his highest-profile assignment came in 2000, when he was offered the job of campaign manager for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s bid for United States Senate. Mr. de Blasio helped coordinate a successful effort, but his deliberative manner rankled some colleagues, who sought to push him out near the end of the campaign.       

His work on Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaign earned national notice; in an episode of “The West Wing,” one character can be seen speaking in front of a board with the words “Call B. De Blasio” written on it.
