Bloomberg Won't Make Endorsement in NYC Mayor's Race

Though he said the Times got it right when they endorsed Joe Lhota


While Mayor Bloomberg tacitly supported Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota in his recent interview with New York by saying he thought the New York Times was "right" to endorse the former MTA chairman in the primary, it seems he will not officially back him — or, unsurprisingly, Bill de Blasio — in the general election. "I don't want to do anything that complicates it for the next mayor, and that's one of the reasons I've decided I'm just not gonna make an endorsement in the race," Bloomberg said during his weekly radio show this morning.
