Well, there was no more or less suspense than anyone expected: Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been reelected in New York City.
The question now, I suppose, is what does he do next? The short answer is serve as mayor of New York City, but my question more has to do with who he aligns himself with in New York state politics and federal politics. Despite his popularity, Bloomberg would have had an awfully hard time winning without the Republican ballot line. Does he owe Republicans any favors?
Also, Tom Menino won a 5th term in Boston.
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.
