Thompson Said to Be DC 37's Choice
Thompson had recently picked up the endorsements of the RWDSU (unsurprising, considering how Bloomberg was treating them) and Working Families Party, at which Bloomberg seemed to think he had a shot...
With a ten-point lead, we don't expect Bloomberg to worry too much, though Azi Paybarah has noticed that the Mayor has begun to attack Thompson -- strangely -- on his campaign contributors, portraying him as a pawn of "real estate and development interests." (Thompson has noticed too.) This may portend a I'm-too-rich-to-buy-off strategy, or be a mere fit of mayoral pique expressed by press release. Or maybe someone or something told the Mayor that it's time to go negative.
(Our own suggestion to Thompson is that he put up better pictures of himself at his web site for us to swipe.)
