Today, Robert John Burck II, The Naked Cowboy, will hold a press conference and kick off his campaign against the incumbent mayor of New York, Michael R. Bloomberg.

His qualifications to run for New York City mayor include being a resident of the city for over 10 years, evading police as he prances around improving Times Square, posing for photos with tourists, wearing nothing but his cowboy hat, tighty-whitie Funpals, boots and a big smile. He will offer voters a stimulus plan for small businesses.

Bloomberg’s platform includes the reactivation of Brooklyn’s working waterfront with his "Sunset Park Waterfront Vision Plan." However, he doesn’t plan on prancing around the docks in his jockey shorts and bear market ticker tapes.
