From the Daily News:
Mayor Bloomberg just endorsed state Assemblywoman Grace Meng for Congress in NY-6, proving that just because you first elected as a Republican doesn't mean you're going to endorse the GOP candidate -- especially if you started out as a Democrat.
"New Yorkers demand representation in Washington that puts the needs of the taxpayers ahead of partisan politics. Grace Meng will be the independent voice in Congress that middle-class families in Queens deserve," Bloomberg said in a campaign statement moments ago that had him backing Meng over Republican City Councilman Dan Halloran.
"Whether it’s her outspoken support for sensible gun legislation to help make our streets safer or her advocacy for common sense immigration reform, Grace embodies the values that Queens’ residents care about most," Hizzoner said.
