Less than 8 days to election, endorsements have been flying around in both Democratic and Republican camps.
The latest is a surprise endorsement of President Obama from New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
The renowned independent who has been a sharp critic of both President Obama and Governor Romney, cited climate change and the Sandy disaster as reasons behind his endorsement of the president.
“The devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the Northeast -- in lost lives, lost homes and lost business -- brought the stakes of Tuesday’s presidential election into sharp relief.” he stated in an editorial on Bloomberg.com.
"...Presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan both found success while their parties were out of power in Congress -- and President Obama can, too. If he listens to people on both sides of the aisle, and builds the trust of moderates, he can fulfill the hope he inspired four years ago and lead our country toward a better future for my children and yours. And that’s why I will be voting for him."
