Bloomberg Plays it Cool on Ruling

During a Q&A with reporters earlier today in Manhattan, Michael Bloomberg downplayed the significance of the Department of Justice’s ruling allowing him to run for a third term.
According to a transcript generously provided to me by someone in attendence, Bloomberg said:

“Well it’s- I’m pleased that they ruled that way but the bottom line is it doesn’t change anything. I’ve said before, you know, I’ve got 290 days left to work as hard as I can, to do the best job I can and to tell the public what I would do if they gave me another four years.
