Times Endorses Yassky; Polls Support Liu, Katz

The Times announced its endorsement for City Comptroller today, choosing David Yassky over Melinda Katz, John Liu and David Weprin. Late last week, an ABC-TV poll had Katz and Liu running neck and neck, with Yassky a distant third (and Undecided beating them all). Given the obscurity of the race (after all, it’s only the second or third most important elected position in the City of New York), the Times endorsement will probably change those polling results, moving a lot of those undecideds.
