Bloomberg Will Help the Governor, Whoever That May Be

Last night, Bill Thompson and Tony Avella said they’d support David Paterson if he made it to a general election next year.

“I don’t even know who is going to be running next year,” he said.”Right now, I’m worried about an election November 3 and then I’ll look at it.”

Bloomberg, who is running on the Republican and Independence lines but courting Democratic voters, added, “I will do everything I can for as long as I am mayor to support our governor, whoever that governor is.”
