After Eric Adams was declared the winner of New York's Democratic mayoral primary last week, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said Adams' coalition of "working-class voters, African-American voters overwhelmingly, and voters who want to see progress on core issues" is not "dissimilar to the coalition that President Biden put together" to emerge from a crowded presidential primary field last year.

But Adams told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday's edition of State of the Union that Klain was underselling the parallels. "He just made a small mistake," Adams said with a laugh. "He said ... 'similar to' — I duplicated it. I was encouraged when I saw what the president did, and I knew what I was hearing on the ground that everyday New Yorkers, just like everyday Americans, they wanted not a government of ... [an] ideological approach, but a pragmatic approach."
