State Senator Eric Adams made it official Sunday, saying he's running for Brooklyn Borough President.

The former city police officer says he's backed by more than 40 elected officials and has plenty of local support as well.

"I think this community has stated we watched you when you wore a blue uniform, we saw you in a blue suit and now we believe it's time for you to expand your beat to an entire borough. Now we'll be patrolling the entire borough of Brooklyn, when we win borough hall and we're looking forward to that," Adams said.

Adams says he's already raised nearly $420,000 for his campaign.
