RACE TO CITY HALL

Clintons Staying Out of the Mayoral Race

They're avoiding the appearance of taking sides.

Sorry Mr. Weiner and Mr. Catsimatidis, we just can’t do it to Bill (BDB) or Chris. Bill and Hillary Clinton are making clear they are staying out of the New York City Democratic mayoral primary,Maggie Haberman reports.

The pair of stay-on-the-sidelines statements came as Anthony Weiner is set to declare his candidacy by video this week, likely on Tuesday or Wednesday, according to Haberman. But the statements seem aimed at avoiding the appearance of taking sides in a race that includes the potential first female (and first openly gay) Democratic nominee, a potential  black New York mayor, and Hillary Clinton’s own former Senate campaign manager, Bill de Blasio.

“Secretary Clinton knows all of the candidates, she has worked with many of them, and is close with many of them, so won’t be weighing in one way or the other,” Hillary Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement to POLITICO.

Likewise, Bill Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said, “President Clinton has too many friends in this race who have been good to him and his family. He wishes them all well, but won’t be getting involved.”

Lhota loves the stop-and-frisk court ruling, de Blasio ‘disappointed.’

Bill de Blassio is expected to win the mayoral race by 40 percentage points.

Lhota admitted that he couldn’t pronounce the term “metzitzah b’peh,” an issue of concern that was brought up several times throughout the day.

“Did you miss me?” Lhota responded with a devilish smirk when asked by a Capital New York reporter about his new aggressive style.

Bill de Blasio may well be measuring the drapes of Gracie Mansion as a new poll shows him with a commanding 44 point lead.

Lhota: “David Koch’s beliefs on social issues are no different than mine or my opponent’s when it comes to women’s choice and women’s issues and other issues like that.”
