Is America's leading political chameleon about to change colors again? From the New York Post:
Mayor Bloomberg has begun reaching out to city Republican leaders to gauge whether he could run on the GOP line in his re-election bid this year, several sources told The Post.
The maneuvering began in the past two weeks, and sources said the mayor is expected to try to run on a major-party as well as a third-party line, likely one of his own creation.
Several sources said Bloomberg's political aides have started reaching out to GOP chairs in the five boroughs, including Manhattan's Jennifer Saul.
In New York, it's common for candidates to run on multiple ballot lines. Bloomberg wouldn't have to call himself a Republican to run as a Republican. But, if he does, he'll definitely be the nation's most famous Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent-turned-Republican.
