New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio refused to endorse former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic nomination on “Meet the Press” Sunday.

De Blasio served as Clinton’s campaign manager during her successful 2000 Senate campaign.

HOST CHUCK TODD: Are you for her now, unequivocally, or do you want to wait to see if she takes your advice on moving to a more progressive agenda?

DE BLASIO: I think like a lot of people in this country I want to see a vision. And, again, that would be true of candidates on all levels. It’s time to see a clear, bold vision for progressive economic change.

TODD: So you’re technically not yet endorsing her?

DE BLASIO: No, not until I see — and, again, I would say this about any candidate, until I see an actual vision of where they want to go. I think she’s a tremendous public servant. I think she’s one of the most qualified people to ever run for this office, and by the way, thoroughly vetted. We can say that. But we need to see the substance.
