Thompson Is Sure Obama Is Watching, at Least

Barack Obama’s absence from the New York City’s mayor’s race has been widely noted by Bil Thompson’s supporters.

Obama has yet to signal support for either candidate. Michael Bloomberg, who is running for re-election on the Republican and Independence lines wasn’t publicly supportive of Obama until after he got into the Oval Office.

At a press conference on Saturday on the Upper West Side, Bill Thompson, the Democratic nominee, said, “I’m hopeful that we can get the president in to endorse my candidacy, come in and do some campaigning.”

Thompson said, “I’m sure they’re paying attention to what’s going on in New York City these days.” Thompson Is Sure Obama Is Watching, at Least
