The latest WikiLeaks emails show that Hillary Cllinton's campaign wanted to keep its distance from New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio. While de Blasio did not endorse Clinton until "six months after her presidential bid," he still wanted to keep a close relationship with her (NY Daily News). NY Daily News also reports that one of Clinton's aides, Huma Abedin, explained in emails how to prevent Clinton from having to deal with Mayor de Blasio directly. Emails show that the Mayor contacted Clinton's campaign about joining his upcoming event, but the campaign declined to attend.
