Capehart, Sharpton, Mexico

Our alert Mexico City correspondent tells us Bloomberg advisor Jonathan Capehart accompanied Al Sharpton on his mission to chide the Mexican president yesterday, something Capehart’s office confirmed.

Capehart, formerly of the Daily News, has been an informal Bloomberg advisor since working on his first campaign, and remains close to Mike. He’s been with him recently to a few gay-related events, and we hear he may wind up being a paid consultant this cycle.

We’re not sure what to make of this trip, though. Perhaps Capehart will report back to Mike on how Rudy’s policing policies are working out down there.

UPDATE: Capehart aficionados will particularly enjoy this picture.

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
