Weld Run Unlikely, Bloomberg Says No

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver doesn't think William Weld will be running for Governor of New York. And some Republicans are happy to hear that and have decided to attack Weld in the mean time by labeling him a "liberal"..

"I don't think there's a chance he can win," said Republican Assemblyman Tom Kirwan of Newburgh.

"He's another liberal, and if we're going to have a liberal as our candidate, let's at least have one of our own, like Mayor Giuliani or Mayor Bloomberg. We shouldn't have to import one," Kirwan said.

However, the liberal Bloomberg has apparently ruled out a run for Governor as has that liberal Giuliani.
