  •  I give a lot of credit to Bill Thompson (1+ / 0-)

    Despite no name recognition and a very low-key campaign, he came incredibly close to kicking Bloomberg to the curb.

      numerically, but surprisingly so, considering the lopsided field.

    •  IMO, Thompson's performance (0+ / 0-)

      was not because of a particularly good campaign on Thompson's part but Bloomberg fatigue and  rebellion that he bought himself an illegal 3rd term.

      I know I personally voted against Bloomberg, not for Thompson. Even his supporters couldn't really articulate why they liked him.
