Bloomberg Basks in a Booker Endorsement

Mayor Michael Bloomberg had an efficient campaign outing this afternoon, receiving the endorsement of Newark Democratic mayor Cory Booker and then visiting with firefighters at a blaze that broke out down the block from his press conference.
Standing before red, green and black “African Americans for Bloomberg” signs in front of a public school on 140th Street, Booker called Bloomberg a “wise elder” and “leader in mayors.” The change Bloomberg had brought to New York, Booker said, was “self evident” and thus the candidate running on the Republican line, “deserves another term.”
Bloomberg, who nodded throughout Booker’s lengthy and effusive remarks, offered Booker a strong pound and an “I Love You Man” hug, and then affected modesty at a podium brandishing a blue “Mike Bloomberg NYC” sign.
