Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan is out with her endorsement in this year's race for the White House.

She's backing fellow Democrat and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in his late-starting bid.

The billionaire is not on the ballot for Monday's Iowa caucuses. But he has mounted a massive-spending ad blitz across the U.S. to get the word out that he wants to be the one to take on President Donald Trump in November.

Sheehan is now the second local mayor to back Bloomberg, after Schenectady's Gary McCarthy endorsed him earlier this year.
