New York - Ray Kelly, Non-Candidate, Gets A Deadline For Becoming One
New York - Ray Kelly will have to decide by this fall if he is going to run for mayor, according to the chairmen of New York City’s five Republican county organizations, who released a statement this afternoon describing their interest in speaking with the popular police commissioner.
In the joint statement, the chairman said a meeting with them “will be a critical step for Kelly or any prospective candidate if he or she is serious about the possibility of running.”
That kind of meeting took place in 2009, when Michael Bloomberg sought permission to run on their line after he had officially left the Republican Party in his second term. Kelly is not enrolled in any party and would need support from three of the five chairman in order to run on the Republican line. (A registered Republican could run, and possibly force a primary contest, without the chairmen’s permission.)
