Grimm Meeting With Mayor At City Hall

grimm 4 Grimm Meeting With Mayor At City HallNewly elected Congressman Michael Grimm is having a “get to know you chat” with Mayor Michael Bloomberg this morning, according to one of Grimm’s aides

Bloomberg was a big supporter of Grimm’s Democratic opponent, Congressman Mike McMahon. A bit of a stir was created after the election when Grimm told NY1 that Bloomberg had not called to congratulate him.  The Bloomberg administration has made a big effort in having good relations with city’s congressional delegation, although other than McMahon, most of the congressional races that Bloomberg got involved in were outside the city.

Grimm in turn tried to tie McMahon to Bloomberg during the race, knocking him for going along with the mayor and voting to raise property taxes when  McMahon served in the City Council, and hitting him on his support of the Ground Zero Mosque.

While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
