Lhota Enters Race for New York City Mayor

Joseph Lhota (R) filed documents to become a Republican candidate for mayor of New York City, the New York Times reports.

Lhota "is something of a throwback: an unapologetically outsize personality, known throughout his career for big emotions and an uninhibited style. His combination of experience -- on Wall Street, in the Giuliani administration and, most recently, running the Metropolitan Transportation Authority -- immediately changes the texture and character of a campaign dominated by Democratic elected officials."
