Today Andrew Cuomo (remember him) is going to trot out Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson, according to Capital New York, and, according to a pretty crazy tweet by The Amsterdam News, at that event Bill Thompson is going to concede the race and endorse de Blasio. And then, essentially, we have a mayor of New York City. (Unless something completely crazy happens to encourage New Yorkers to suddenly become Republicans by election day? Don't even think it.) Well it's been fun. But not really that fun.
Sources to the AmNews have confrirmed that Bill Thompson will concede today at 11am to avoid a runoff and endorse Bill de Blasio
