#ICYMI: Rudy’s Got a Whole Lhota Love for MTA Chief’s Possible Mayoral Bid

Last week the story broke that former New York City mayor Rudolf Giuliani would be an “enthusiastic supporter” MTA Chairman/Brooklyn Heights resident/Republican Joe Lhota’s potential bid for NYC mayor in 2013. Another former mayor of NYC, Ed Koch, told WCBS 880 that while he felt Lhota was a well qualified candidate for the GOP, he’d be supporting Democrat Christine Quinn in the general election.

Lhota has not commented on a possible run as yet.

    I hope he’s not as apathetic as all MTA employees if he’s elected.

    Despite the 9/11 hype, Rudy was the pits — and let us not forget his brilliant recommendation for head of Homeland Security.

    @Moni..AMEN! Why we are supposed to care what Rudy thinks about anything is beyond me. But his endorsement of Lhota is enough for me, if you get my drift.

    Remember Rudy’s endorsement of Bernard Kerik for Homeland Security chief—before it turned out Kerik was a big crook.

    But, he isn’t a Bloomberg Puppet. Is he?
