Neither New York Senator Is Backing Michael Bloomberg for NYC Mayor

Both Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are opting to support William Thompson Jr. instead of the two-term incumbent, who’s been highkicking his foot into his mouth lately. That’s not to say either U.S. senator from New York doesn’t like Michael Bloomberg. It’s just that he’s a Republican, and they have to fall into party lines and back the Dem.
