Bloomberg Meets With G.O.P. Chairs, Leaves Fast

Michael Bloomberg met with the five county Republican leaders this morning to seek approval to run in their party’s primary, then left after a brief exchange with reporters.
That job was, for the most part, left to Bloomberg campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson, who said that although the mayor would like to run on the Republican line, his administration would continue to “govern” in a nonpartisan manner.
Here’s what the mayor said before he left: “It was a nice meeting. These are five county leaders and we talked about the economy, the economy of the country, the economy of New York City in particular. We talked about elections and politics obviously, and I said the last two times I ran, I ran on the Republican line and I’d be honored to run again.
