New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's endorsement is up for grabs. He has good reasons to support each of the three major presidential contenders. In that context, his comment on the gas tax holiday, which is supported by John McCain and Hillary Clinton, is very interesting. From the New York Times :
"It's about the dumbest thing I've heard in an awful long time from an economic point of view," Mr. Bloomberg told reporters, adding that he did not see "any merit to it whatsoever."
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
