New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a political independent, visited Philadelphia this morning to endorse Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Joe Sestak.
At a news conference in the parking lot at Progress Plaza in North Philadelphia, the mayor declared, "A vote for Joe is a vote for leadership, for independence and the results this nation needs."
Sestak said, "I'd like to serve with the same practical businesslike approach as Mayor Bloomberg, and let the political consequences fall where they may."
The two went into the Fresh Grocer for cheesesteaks. Bloomberg asked for hot sauce. What kind of cheese? "Not Swiss," he said, a reference to John Kerry's faux pas in 2004 presidential campaign.
