After Mayor Bloomberg made it clear he'd run for a third term if the City Council passes legislation to extend term limits to three terms, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn held a press conference. First, the legislation would permanently extend term limits to three. Second, she wouldn't run, "If term limits are extended to 12 years from 8 years, no, I would not run for mayor." As for other mentioned 2009 hopefuls, City Comptroller Bill Thompson's campaign is still "moving forward" and Representative Anthony Weiner, who narrowly lost the 2005 Democratic primary to Freddy Ferrer, is still interested in running and said there should be a special election for term limits.
