Just moments ago, Mayor Mike Bloomberg announced that he has changed his registration at the Board of Elections to independent, thus ending Republican rule over New York City. Here's his statement in full:
"I have filed papers with the New York City Board of Elections to change my status as a voter and register as unaffiliated with any political party. Although my plans for the future haven’t changed, I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead our City.
A lot of folks like Mayor Mike and he has the money to give Hillary and Obama a run. The '08 race just got interesting.
