Bill Thompson’s Ungraceful Exit

Last week we were wondering if there would be a Democratic Party runoff.  The answer: no.  One, because Thompson ceded the race, and two, because de Blasio eventually got over 40 percent of the vote.  So we are retiring several candidates this week: John Liu, George McDonald, Sal Albanese, Erick Salgado, and Randy Credico.  We are also adding Anthony Gronowicz to this week's installment of the "New York City Mayoral Candidates Power Standings (or something like that)" as he is likely to get more media attention going into the general election.

As far as the rankings go, Christine Quinn moves up to second place over Bill Thompson due mostly to her graceful exit from the race.

I am going to miss the cat man, but it seems like he is planning another run, so there is that.
