Don’t Tell Thomas Friedman
John McCain is apparently lobbying New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg to endorse Mitt Romney:
John McCain is trying to convince Mayor Bloomberg to support Mitt Romney’s bid for president.
McCain — the GOP Arizona senator who lost to President Obama in 2008 — visited the mayor at City Hall yesterday to talk up the likely Republican nominee.
“I just came in to pay my respects to the mayor. He and I are old friends from many years back,” McCain told The Post as he left City Hall. “I told him that I just spent last weekend with Romney and I thought that Romney was on message . . . and tried to convince the mayor that we’ve got a winning campaign.”
I suggest the New York Times stock up on valium for the boys in the newsroom just in case Bloomberg follows McCain’s lead and puts a final nail in the coffin of the great Acela Corridor Fantasy.
