  • The real wild card is Republican primary challenger Tom Ognibene, the former GOP leader of the City Council, who is coming at Bloomberg from the right. Hardcore conservatives are convinced that plenty of churchgoing blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Russians, Italians, and Irish may now think twice about Bloomberg. It's unlikely the party establishment would embrace the relatively untested Ognibene over the battle-proven incumbent. But if he can pound home his message well enough, he could knock Bloomberg off the Republican line. Already the Queens GOP club has backed Ognibene. How many voters go along remains to be seen.
