WNYC – Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota visited a Chabad-Lubavitch center in Queens today, where he paid his respects to the late Rebbe Menachem Schneerson.

Lhota also left a blessing, saying it was private but had to do with “the future of New York City.”

Lhota also answered some questions about his campaign, saying he is seeking an endorsement from mayor Michael Bloomberg. “I’ve placed a phone call. He’s been very busy with all the 9/11 events,” he said. “I’ll talk to him in due time.”
