Bill Thompson said he was “surprised” that Anthony Weiner told supporters he’s still considering the wisdom of entering the mayor’s race.
At 1 Centre Street after a press conference in which Thompson advocated an extension of the film tax credit, I asked him about Weiner’s explanation for reconsidering whether or not to run–that he needs to focus on his work in Washington.
Thompson, the city’s comptroller, said he won’t have that problem: “I can do two things at one time,” he said.
A Daily News reporter asked Thompson, “How does it feel to be the last man standing in the Democratic primary, Tony Avella aside?”
“The situation is what it is,” Thompson said. “I’m going to continue to stay focused.” Thompson said.
