Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota has a lot of ground to cover before the general election in two weeks, and some GOP observers aren’t confident that the former MTA chief’s campaign has the political wherewithal to pull it off. [NYDN]

Meanwhile, Lhota also tweeted to another Daily News report that his Democratic rival Bill de Blasio had a front row seat to the Crown Heights riots in 1991, when de Blasio was an aide in Mayor David Dinkins’ administration. [NYDN]
“It doesn't appear from the Daily News piece that de Blasio played any major part in the city's response to the riots,” wrote the Village Voice. [Village Voice]
Political consultant and former Koch advisor Luis Miranda told WNYC that Indepdendece Party candidate Adolfo Carrion’s dragging campaign for mayor belies his former political promise: “ I just thinking leaving the Democratic party killed his chances of being in elected office.” [WNYC]
