Mayor Bloomberg, a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned independent who has yet to say which ballot line(s) he'll seek for his 2009 re-election bid, has paid homage to two different Democratic county chairman over the past 24 hours.
Last night, he traveled to Bushwick for a community meeting with Brooklyn Democratic Chairman Vito Lopez, who called the mayor "a hero."
This morning, Bloomberg made a highly-unusual and unannounced stop at the Regency Hotel for the ABNY breakfast where Queens Democratic Chairman Joe Crowley was speaking.
Recall that the mayor only needs to receive approval from three of the city's five Democratic county leaders in order to compete in the party's primary in 2009. A consultant close to Bloomberg told me last month that the mayor would be "foolish" not to shoot for Row A if he could only figure out a way to do it.
