NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he hopes the administration of his successor, Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh), "is even better" than his own. Bloomberg spoke Friday on his radio show. De Blasio, a Democrat, won a lopsided victory over Republican Joe Lhota this week and will lead the nation's largest city after 12 years with Bloomberg at the helm. Bloomberg says he hopes for a "seamless transition." He also touched on other races, including Democrat Terry McAuliffe's victory over Ken Cuccinelli (koo-chih-NEHL'-ee) in the Virginia governor's race. Blooomberg says McAuliffe, a Democrat, "was an unapologetic backer of common-sense gun laws." Bloomberg is a longtime gun-control advocate. Bloomberg says he spent money on the Virginia race to make sure everyone knew McAuliffe's position on guns.
