From the NY Times:
In Flushing, Queens, on Monday afternoon, the mayor announced the creation of a coalition, Asians for Bloomberg, dedicated to his re-election bid.
Mr. Bloomberg was greeted with chants of “four more years” by a large, boisterous crowd of Chinese, Filipino, Korean and Indian community and business leaders. They waved red-and-yellow signs that read, “Asians for Mike Bloomberg.”
“This is the year of the ox and the ox celebrates hard work and persistence,” the mayor said during the announcement, at Jade Asian Restaurant on 39th Avenue in Flushing. “These are the values that are going to help get us through this year.”
