Daily News Endorses Christine Quinn

The New York Daily News has officially endorsed Christine Quinn to be the next mayor of this fine city. In an editorial, the paper says it’s backing Quinn because she has the experience necessary to carry on the successes of Michael Bloomberg:

The News endorses Quinn because she combines the clearest understanding of the difficulties facing the city with the most extensive record of getting things done. Her proposals for the working and middle classes could actually come to fruition, as opposed to the many pie-in-the-sky pronouncements of her competitors.

As for The New York Times’ boy — Bill de Blasio — the News credited him for having strong ideals, but said “de Blasio’s oratory is far more powerful than the small-bore economic inequality fixes that he has advanced.”
