Which does this:
Breaking #nyassembly news: Assemblyman Keith Wright has endorsed Carl Heastie's bid to be speaker. This is big news; unites black support.

Cathy Nolan of Queens and Joe Lentol of Brooklyn announced today, along with Heastie.
Heastie was considered the front runner even with Wright looking to be speaker.
With Wright out and throwing his support to Heastie, that makes him that much more the front runner to be permanent speaker.
