Thompson’s Campaign Strategy

At the Working Families Party’s mayoral forum yesterday, one moment that stood out to me was when Bill Thompson was asked, basically, if he has any chance of beating Michael Bloomberg.
If there was a moment to rally the troops, prove doubters wrong, and summon the courage of their convictions, this was it.
“Let me quote somebody who said rich guys don’t always win,” said Thompson, borrowing a line from Bloomberg, who, earlier in the event, defended his unlimited campaign.
Then Thompson spoke of his grass-roots campaign, “The likes of which New York City has never seen,” he said.
