So how much weight should be put into Michael Bloomberg’s denials about running for president?
According to Bloomberg’s chief political strategist, Deputy Mayor Kevin Sheekey, not much.
In an interview with City Hall News, Sheekey said that Barack Obama made the same denials, and it hasn’t hurt his campaign.
Sheekey also dismissed the idea of running for office himself. "Yeah, but for what? I’m gonna run for Gale Brewer’s job?"
