Amazingly despite spending 15 times LESS than Bloomberg, Democratic Mayoral candidate Bill Thompson is closing in on Bloomberg's lead.
I'm sort of astounded/sickened that while the recession has hit the city hard, Bloomberg (already such a political heavyweight) has spent 36 million of his own money on his 2009 campaign for his 3rd term. He has been constantly on television and even though I don't support him, on my Facebook page.
I hope New York Democrats (who are supporting Bloomberg at a slight edge) will consider Thompson.
