Asked about former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s disappointing showing and whether it might prompt him to drop out of the race, the president of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association replied, “I was a little surprised with the performance.

Maybe now he puts all his resources behind the [eventual] nominee.”
