NYC Police Commissioner Kelly Leads for Mayor, But He’s Not Running


The front-runner in the fight to become New York’s next mayor, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, isn’t even in the race, says the New York Daily News. A new poll from Quinnipiac University found that city voters put Kelly ahead of other possible contenders in the 2013 campaign, although he has consistently said he isn’t running, hasn’t hired campaign staff and hasn’t raise a dime.

Nearly a quarter of voters – 23% – said he would be their pick, including 17% of Democrats. If Kelly doesn’t run, voters give City Council Speaker Christine Quinn an early lead, with support from 23% of voters.
