Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “De Blasio misses leaving NYC to campaign for president: ‘It’s an incredible experience’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Hizzoner said Friday that he misses the “amazing” experience of leaving the five boroughs to campaign for president.

“I miss it because it’s an incredible experience connecting with the American people and being able to talk about where we need to go and to talk about…how this has to be the party of working people, not the party of billionaires,” de Blasio said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday.

De Blasio’s comments come after a Daily News analysis this week found he worked on the city’s business for just 2 hours and 20 minutes a day on average during the bulk of his ill-fated campaign. That was roughly half his working time during the same three and a half month period last year.

In addition to getting him out of the city, the mayor said his failed 2020 bid made him “hopeful for the future of the country.”

“It’s encouraging,” he said. “I think a lot of our public discourse actually misses the fact that on the ground in America are not only a lot of good people, but a lot of good people trying to address the issues in their community, trying to work together, working together across partisan lines.”
