Comptroller Scott Stringer has yet to officially kick off his presumptive bid to become mayor, but he still picked up his first endorsement in the race on Friday from a Queens lawmaker.

State Sen. Jessica Ramos told The Post she believes Stringer “will make a great mayor” and plans to back him in what will be heated 2021 race to replace a term-limited Bill de Blasio, who was out of town in Iowa kicking off his pipe-dream presidential campaign.

Ramos, who was elected to office last November after previously serving as de Blasio’s director of Latino media, had joined Stringer at a Manhattan press conference where he announced his vision to expand affordable child care in the city for working families.

She volunteered that she’s backing Stringer to be the next mayor.

Stringer had backed Ramos in her insurgent Democratic Party primary bid last year, when she toppled incumbent Jose Peralta.

Ramos’ announcement comes days after City Council Speaker Corey Johnson landed his first endorsement in the mayoral race: Queens Councilman Daniel Dromm.

Other top Democrats eyeing a mayoral run include Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Rubén Díaz Jr.
