Thompson Gets His First Newspaper Endorsement, For the Primaries

Here’s the latest Amsterdam News, which endorses Bill Thompson on its front page. It’s Thompson’s first newspaper endorsement of the campaign.

“He bridges divides and speaks to communities as if he were part of each and every one,” the endorsement says.

It should be noted that the endorsement is only for the primary, not general election. The endorsement doesn’t mention the general election or Michael Bloomberg.

The paper also endorses Norman Siegel for Public Advocate, John Liu for comptroller and Cy Vance for Manhattan district attorney. In local races, they went with Ydanis Rodriguez for the seat vacated by Miguel Martinez, Jumaane Williams, who is challenging Kendall Stewart, and Helen Sears, who is facing a three-way primary.
