Bloomberg Endorses Cuomo: Wait, Who Did You Vote For Again??

Reporters were taken back a bit today at a press conference—where Mike Bloomberg announced that he was endorsing Andrew Cuomo for governor—when Cuomo said that he had voted for Bloomberg for mayor.

As Maggie Haberman smartly pointed out, Cuomo has only voted in one mayoral election, in 2005, leading the Cuomo campaign to walk back the attorney general’s earlier remarks.

It is worth noting that in 2009, Cuomo endorsed Bill Thompson, doing a brief walk-through with him in the Bronx. That endorsement however was fairly perfunctory, coming only a week before the election. Thompson seems to bare no-ill feelings. Perhaps considering his own 2013 mayoral prospects, he has signed on as co-chair for the Cuomo campaign.
