De Blasio Not Likely to Endorse a Successor

Public advocate candidate Bill de Blasio said last night that he's 99 percent sure he won't endorse any of the (many) people running for the Brooklyn City Council seat he's vacating.

Among those candidates is Bob Zuckerman, a former president of the Stonewall Democrats, where de Blasio and other public advocate candidates spoke last night.

Also running for that seat is former Councilman Steve DiBrienza, who has drawn some controversy; Josh Skaller, who has highlighted those controversies; Brad Lander, who runs then Pratt Center for Community Development; and "5th generation South Brooklynite" John Heyer [fixed].
