Bloomberg Endorses Obama

In a surprise announcement, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that Hurricane Sandy had reshaped his thinking about the presidential campaign, and he announced that he was endorsing President Obama, the New York Times reports.

Bloomberg has been sharply critical of both Obama and Mitt Romney but he said he "had decided over the past several days that Mr. Obama was the best candidate to tackle the global climate change that the mayor believes contributed to the violent storm, which took the lives of at least 37 New Yorkers and caused billions of dollars in damage."

Bloomberg added he might have endorsed Romney, "except for the fact that the Republican had abandoned positions he once publicly held."
