Thompson’s Campaign on Deserving an Obama Endorsement

Yesterday, Barack Obama’s spokesman told reporters the president wasn’t going to make an endorsement in the New York mayor’s race, then later said he meant only that Obama was not definitely endorsing Michael Bloomberg, who was at the White House for a meeting. So, either way, not great news for Bill Thompson–and further evidence that the mayor is successfully depriving him, or whoever winds up with the nomination, of his party’s infrastructure.
But Thompson’s campaign isn’t accepting the snub quietly, implying that the comptroller deserves the president’s support more than Bloomberg does.
“Bill Thompson endorsed Barack Obama and the mayor didn’t,” Thompson’s campaign spokeswoman Anne Fenton told me.
