Changing Party to Run for Mayor Crain’s Insider:
Ahead of tonight’s deadline, State Sen. Malcolm Smith, D-Queens, said he won’t change parties. This is the final day for New York candidates to change their registration to run as a member of a new party in 2013. Smith is seeking to run for mayor on the Republican line but said he had never considered becoming a GOP member. Smith said he still might register as an independent to increase his odds of getting Republican backing but will miss the Oct. 12 cutoff. Democrat Tom Allon, the Manhattan Media CEO, declined to comment on whether he would become a Republican by the end of today. * City Hall Horse Race: We Won’t Have Mayor Mike to Kick Around Anymore Edition(NYO)
