QUOTED: George Smitherman predicts whether Rob Ford will win a second term

QUOTED: George Smitherman predicts whether Rob Ford will win a second term

I suspect his chances at re-election are extraordinarily good, because even though he’s not exactly living up to everyone’s dreams of what a mayor ought to look like, and how a mayor ought to act and project himself, it’s working for a good cluster of folks.

George Smitherman, whose own mayoral aspirations didn’t exactly pan out, on why Rob Ford will likely pull off a win in the 2014 election race. The mayor is slated to testify today in Clayton Ruby’s conflict-of-interest case against him, but Smitherman says he doesn’t believe the suit will be a significant problem for Ford. (Neither, for that matter, does Ford.) [Global News]
