12. There is one other position, one of importance-


and with Bloomberg not running again, and a possibly major fight on the democratic/liberal side there may be a showdown of Ray Kelly vs. Peter King for the republican nomination for Mayor.

While Bloomberg was (IMHO) a liberal running in disguise other than the Dem he always used to be, King would be a rare ultra conservative/neo-con to the right (Kelly would ironically be considered more liberal). King might get Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn & Queens running against say Christine Quinn who most likely(but not assured) would be the Democrat.

Quinn would need to develop a bigger base outside of Manhattan to be assured of winning, and it is possible there could be a racial divide if the primary is bitter.
There are parts of Brooklyn and Queens that are sexist.(and of course racist).(and a majority of Staten Island).

As Schumer is the #1 friend of Israel in the senate, I sincerely doubt King(also a big friend of Israel, but not a Jewish person himself) could beat Schumer figuring he will run again.

We would be so lucky if he just slinked away to a high paying lobby job or something.
But remember he flirted briefly with running for President laughable as that idea was.
