Bloomberg & Giuliani to Campaign Together in Friendly NY Territories
Admittedly they have chosen appropriate venues. So far it is revealed that they will team up in Borough Park this weekend, where the Hasidim are very Giuliani-friendly, for a Jewish Community Council breakfast. And on Halloween they'll join Beep James Molinaro in Staten Island, residents of which are big fans.
But if the duo stray into, say, Park Slope or other such communities, or even if word gets around, their pairing may stir untoward results. It's been shown that Bloomberg polls much worse when he's identified (inaccurately) as a Republican. Hanging with the former GOP Preisdential contender -- admittedly the only one of those who would conceivably campaign with Bloomberg, now that Nixon is dead -- may make people forget the Mayor's carefully calculated switch to independent status.
