New York Times Endorses Christine Quinn, Joe Lhota in NYC Mayoral Primaries

With just a little more than two weeks left before primary day, the New York Times editorial board has announced its preferred Democratic mayoral candidate: Christine Quinn. (The paper also endorsed Joe Lhota, for anyone watching or voting in the Republican race.) The authors write that Mayor Bloomberg's reign has been defined by "often inspiring, sometimes maddening priorities" and "a vision that succeeded brilliantly, but incompletely." Quinn, a longtime Bloomberg ally who only began to publicly differ with him when she hit the campaign trail, "is a candidate who is ready to carry on at least as well as he did."
