In a statement released Monday, Obama said de Blasio would be a “great” mayor to “America’s largest city.” Obama also cited de Blasio’s campaign on progressive values:

Progressive change is the centerpiece of Bill de Blasio’s vision for New York City, and it’s why he will be a great mayor of America’s largest city,

Whether it’s ensuring pre-kindergarten is available for every four-year old, expanding after-school programs for every middle school student who wants and needs them, making affordable housing available for more New York families and preserving community hospitals, Bill’s agenda for New York is marked by bold, courageous ideas that address the great challenges of our time.

In response, De Blasio tweeted the following:

He also promised to do whatever it takes to help New Yorkers if elected, saying, “If I am fortunate to earn the trust of the people of New York on November 5th, I will work every day to advance our shared value of making sure everyone has a fair shot,” he said.

In 2009, President Obama endorsed Bill Thompson for mayor; however, at the time, the endorsement was seen as coming too late in the race.

De Blasio will take on Republican Mayoral candidate Joe Lhota for the mayoral seat on November 5th.
