Bouldin over at Daily Gotham thinks Bloomberg will wind up endorsing Eliot Spitzer.
There’s a logic to that: If it’s Spitzer and a GOPer in the general election, it might be hard for him to back the guy promising to fight the court ruling sending money to the city.
But City Hall types say there’s another problem: Mike shares the Street’s dislike of Eliot’s prosecutorial tactics, which have hit a lot of big Bloomberg LP customers. And that’s some kind of bottom line. It may also explain why Tom Suozzi got a seat of honor at the State of the City address.
