Bill Thompson Gets Another Bloomberg-Friendly Endorsement


Adding to the slew of high-profile Democrats who have either grudgingly endorsed comptroller Bill Thompson or have refused to pick sides in the mayoral election altogether, former mayor David Dinkins indicated yesterday that he will back Thompson but “doesn’t plan to speak ill of Bloomberg, who has ‘done a pretty good job.’” In case it wasn’t clear that Dinkins’s heart wasn’t fully into this endorsement, he also mentioned that Thompson’s “father is a good friend of mine, and that’s a factor as well.” [NYDN]
