Mayor Bill de Blasio took his infamous “dad humor” to The Daily Show this evening, where he took jabs at the Upper East Side and his predecessor Michael Bloomberg, and proved he could eat pizza like a normal New Yorker: with his hands, according to a mayoral pool report.
With less than three weeks to go until the Democratic mayoral primary, the candidates are hard at work trying to court the Latino vote.
Today, in another sign the vote remains up for grabs, former Congressman Anthony Weiner and former City Comptroller Bill Thompson both released Spanish-language television advertisements–the first of the mayor’s race.
Mayoral contender Anthony Weiner is set to hit the airwaves Monday with his first televised ad, which he sent out to his supporters early this morning.
“Our campaign has had policy speeches, idea books and lots of community meetings. Now we have a TV commercial. The first look is yours,” Mr. Weiner wrote in a post-midnight email to supporters titled, “Sneak Preview.”
Anthony Weiner isn’t going to quit the mayor’s race because this is New York.
“I know that there are newspaper editors and other politicians that say, ‘Boy, I wish that guy Weiner would quit,'” Mr. Weiner says in a new ad posted on his campaign website. “They don’t know New York. They certainly don’t know me. ‘Quit’ isn’t the way we roll in New York City.”
