Some BX Democrats crossing party lines to vote for Mayor Bloomberg
As the mayor?s race draws to a close, many Bronx Democrats say they will be crossing party lines to vote for Republican incumbent Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Election Day.
Bloomberg?s challenger, Fernando Ferrer, has used many tactics throughout his mayoral campaign. He has appeared with star Democrats, including former President Bill Clinton. Ferrer has also attacked the mayor?s record-spending on his campaign, which some estimate to be $100 million. In response to Ferrer?s attack, Bloomberg says he just wants everyone in the community to know what he has done and what he plans to do for the city.
The polls currently show Bloomberg with a 30-point lead. Bloomberg used to be a Democrat but switched parties in 2001 before running for mayor. If re-elected, New York would have a Republican mayor for 16 years.
