Citing Climate Change And Equality, Bloomberg Backs Obama

honored to have Mayor Bloomberg's endorsement.  I deeply respect him
for his leadership in business, philanthropy and government, and
appreciate the extraordinary
job he's doing right now, leading New York City through these difficult

we may not agree on every issue, Mayor Bloomberg and I agree on the
most important issues of our time – that the key to a strong economy is
investing in the skills
and education of our people, that immigration reform is essential to an
open and dynamic democracy, and that climate change is a threat to our
children's future, and we owe it to them to do something about it.  Just
as importantly, we agree that whether we
are Democrats, Republicans, or independents, there is only one way to
solve these challenges and move forward as a nation – together.  

I look
forward to thanking him in person – but for now, he has my continued
commitment that this country will stand by New
York in its time of need. And New Yorkers have my word that we will
recover, we will rebuild, and we will come back stronger.
