Mayor Bill de Blasio and Rep. Joseph Crowley presented a united front at a Three Kings Day celebration in Queens Sunday, though last week the Democrats backed rival candidates in the heated race for City Council speaker.

De Blasio and Crowley posed for photos with their arms around each other, and the congressman insisted to reporters that no hard feelings remain.

“We disagreed on a political issue. That’s behind us now and now we’re moving forward,” said Crowley, chairman of the Queens County Democratic Party.

Mark-Viverito was chosen as City Council speaker last Wednesday.
