Republican George McDonald runs for NYC mayor

NEW YORK (AP) - The head of a nonprofit that helps homeless people is running for mayor of New York City.

The founder and president of the Doe Fund, George McDonald, made it official on Thursday.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg ends his third term at the end of the year. He is a Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.

Several Democratic veterans of city politics are expected to run in the September primary.

They include City Councilman Sal Albanese; Comptroller John Liu; Public Advocate Bill de Blasio; Council Speaker Christine Quinn; and former Comptroller Bill Thompson.

Republican Joseph Lhota left his post as MTA chairman to explore running for mayor.

Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion left the Democratic Party to become unaffiliated. He might run as an independent on the Republican and Independence Party lines.
