New York City mayoral election, Inthe incumbent mayor of New York City, Rudy Giulianiwas ineligible for re-election, as the city limited the mayoralty to two consecutive terms.
Several well-known New York City politicians aspired to succeed him. Bloomberg, a lifelong member of the Democratic Partydecided to run for mayor as a member of the Republican Party ticket.
Voting in the primary began on the morning of September 11, The primary was postponed later that day, due to the September 11 attacks.
In the rescheduled primary, Bloomberg defeated Herman Badilloa former Congressmanto become the Republican nominee. Meanwhile, the Democratic primary did not produce a first-round winner. In the general election, Bloomberg received Giuliani's endorsement.
He also had a huge spending advantage. Although New York City's campaign finance law restricts the amount of contributions which a candidate can accept, Bloomberg chose not to use public campaign funds and therefore his campaign was not subject to these restrictions.
In addition to serving as the Republican nominee, Bloomberg had the ballot line of the controversial Independence Partyin which " Social Therapy " leaders Fred Newman and Lenora Fulani exert strong influence. Under New York's fusion rules, a candidate can run on more than one party's line and combine all the votes received on all lines.
Green, the Democrat, had the ballot line of the Working Families Party. He also created an independent line called Students First whose votes were combined with those on the Independence line.
Another factor was the vote in Staten Islandwhich has traditionally been far friendlier to Republicans than the rest of the city. Bloomberg handily beat Green in that borough, taking 75 percent of the vote there.
Overall, Bloomberg won 50 percent to 48 percent. New York City has not been won by a Republican in a presidential election since Calvin Coolidge won in Bloomberg is considered a social liberalwho is pro-choicein favor of legalizing same-sex marriage and an advocate for stricter gun control laws.

And that's one of the reasons I've decided I'm just not going to make an endorsement in the race. Earlier in the month, Bloomberg was chastised in the press for his remarks regarding Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio 's campaign methods. I think it's pretty obvious to anyone watching what he's been doing.
I do not think he himself is racist.
