Yesterday, Democratic State Senate nominee Matthew Titone picked up the endorsement of the Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum. I am doubtful that an endorsement from the Public Advocate in any race carries much weight for the sheer fact that the office and office holder are such an unknown to the general population of the city. However what is interesting is the possibility that Gotbaum, the second highest ranking official in the city behind the mayor, may be looking to take that next political step to succeed Bloomberg. Similar to the news of Rep. Anthony Weiner getting involved in Stephen Harrison's efforts, we might be seeing another mayoral hopeful trying to use their campaigning clout to boost their 2009 chances.
