The battle over additional oversight of the NYPD heated up again when Mayor Bloomberg was asked whether he would support a candidate who endorses installing an inspector general, which he opposes. Melissa Russo reports.
Mayor Bloomberg says he knows who'll get his vote to succeed him next year, but reporters might as well quit asking him about it.
The mayor said Wednesday that if he wants to make an endorsement, he will. But he told reporters he's "not going to spend the whole time between now and the election talking about" the issue.
Bloomberg's third and final term is up this year. Several Democratic, Republican and independent candidates are in the race for November's election.
Bloomberg reiterated Wednesday that he's made his choice. But he's not disclosing it, at least for now.
And he says he could change his mind between now and Election Day — not that anyone will necessarily know.
