Bloomberg Will Not Endorse a Successor

If you were waiting for a higher power to tell you whom to vote for, you may be out of luck. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg made the surprising announcement on Friday that he is endorsing ... no one. Not sure if his endorsement would actually help anyone, Bloomberg said, "I don't want to do anything that complicates it for the next mayor." More tellingly, his preferred candidate, Christine Quinn, lost in the Democratic primary, and Bloomberg has no relationship with either Democrat Bill de Blasio or Republican Joseph J. Lhota. But a lack of endorsement leaves a burning question: which candidate will protect our rights to giant sodas?
