Thompson and Bloomberg Meet

Michael Bloomberg and Bill Thompson had breakfast together at Gracie Mansion, according to Bloomberg’s spokesman.

A spokesman for Thompson, Jeff Simmons, said, “It was a cordial breakfast. They discussed the future of New York City.”

It’s their first meeting since the election. During the campaign, there were hints that Bloomberg could endorse Thompson for higher office, if the mayor’s race didn’t get too nasty. Currently, Thompson is considering a run for U.S. Senate or state comptroller.

But all that’s a long way off for now.

Bloomberg has been having private meetings with other leading officials, like the two other incoming citywide officials, Bill de Blasio and, more recently, John Liu.
