City Council Speaker Christine Quinn formally declared Sunday that she is running for mayor. "I'm running for mayor because I love this city. It's the greatest place in the world," she said in a five-minute video posted on her campaign website at 8 a.m and linked to a post on Twitter. She spent several hours on a walking-and-talking tour of the boroughs (New York, The Associated Press, DNAInfo).

Although it was far from a surprise, the City Hall press corp gamely followed along, with The New York Times reporting this about one encounter between the candidate and a bus driver in the Bronx: "It was a scene nearly unimaginable in this buttoned-up era of City Hall: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, after all, is not known for greeting New Yorkers with an enthusiastic public display of affection." She sounded her campaign theme of representing the middle class (Capital New York).

Quinn has a lead in the polls for the Democratic primary, which is expected to take place in September (The Wall Street Journal). Daily News columnist Mike Lupica wonders whether Quinn "can run for mayor and win by talking out of both sides of her mouth."

Here's Quinn's video:
