De Blasio, who entered the race in May, has struggled to make headway in the polls and fundraising amid the crowded Democratic field.
The mayor presented himself as a progressive leader and appeared to be drawing a contrast between himself and Harris and Biden, painting them as more moderate.
He also appeared to be taking a page out of Harris’s playbook from the first Democratic debates last month, when she confronted Biden on his civil rights record.
Harris’s move on the second night of the first debates paid off for her in the polls and fundraising, pushing her into the primary field’s top tier.
