NYC mayoral Andrew Yang accepts endorsement of New Era Democrats – New York Daily News

The organization was founded in 1982 during Mario Cuomo’s first run for governor, went dormant after one of its leaders, Ralph Sansone, died in 1986, and then returned to support Giuliani in his first run for mayor in 1989, according to its website. Giuliani lost narrowly in the general election to David Dinkins but then stormed back and beat Dinkins in 1993.
