NYC mayor on presidential run: 'No way, no how'

December 12th, 2010 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says there is "no way, no how" that he will run for president of the United States.

Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," Bloomberg said in an interview broadcast Sunday that his advisers should "cease-and-desist" with their suggestions that he run.

The Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent says he's focused on his job as mayor. He has occasionally been mentioned as a long-shot presidential candidate.

Bloomberg says he wants to leave office having a reputation "as a very good, maybe the greatest mayor ever."

He was elected for a third term in 2009.

During the interview with host David Gregory, Bloomberg answered questions on tax cuts, the economy, immigration and party politics.
