Good thing it’s a secret. Anyone on the right still leery about Mitt Romney may wonder why he’s courting the support of this tiny tyrant.
Mitt Romney is quietly courting New York mayors past and present while campaigning in Manhattan Tuesday.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee had a private breakfast with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Tuesday morning at the the headquarters of the billionaire mayor’s philanthropic foundation. Romney’s campaign did not inform the press that the meeting would occur, although later confirmed that the men had met.
Later Tuesday, Romney is set to hold a campaign event with former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, according to multiple media reports. Giuliani endorsed Romney’s campaign late last month, saying the former governor had “proven he’s the most effective Republican.”
According to two people with knowledge of the Bloomberg meeting, cited by the New York Times, the pair discussed the economy, immigration, education and gun control over coffee and juice.
Bloomberg’s a duplicitous gun control nut who Romney should distance himself from. Courting his support will only hurt.
