Republican comptroller candidate Harry Wilson will pick up the endorsement of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg tomorrow, his campaign announced this afternoon. Liz got word of the endorsement yesterday.
As she noted, it’s the highest-profile endorsement the Scarsdale resident has received in his run against Democratic comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, who is running for election for the first time to the position.
Like Bloomberg, Wilson comes to politics from the business world. Wilson is a millionaire, not a billionaire like Bloomberg, but Wilson is expected to pump big bucks into his race to defeat DiNapoli. And that will likely be aided by a few dollars from Bloomberg, it appears.
