Mayor Bloomberg: 'Zero' chance he'll endorse Charlie Crist

We dig reading St. Petersblog, even though its provocative "exclusives" often turn out to be false. So Bloombergwhen our friend Peter Schorsch reported that Mayor Michael Bloomberg is jumping on the Charlie Crist train, it sounded dubious. Bloomberg is much tighter with Jeb Bush, with whom he shares a passion for education reform, than Crist.

So we checked in with Deputy New York Mayor Howard Wolfson about the rumor. "False,'' Wolfson said. The chances of Bloomberg helping Crist down the road? "Zero."

"Mayor Bloomberg was very disappointed that Gov. Crist vetoed an excellent education bill and has no intention of endorsing him," Wolfson said, referring the controversial SB 6, teacher merit pay bill Crist shot down.
