New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, a Republican, has the assistance of opera legend Beverly Sills in his re-election campaign, Newsday reports.

Bloomberg's principal opponent is Democratic candidate Fernando Ferrer.

Some voters will receive a taped telephone message from Sills, who is the former chair of the board at the Metropolitan Opera and who sang for over two decades with New York City Opera, requesting their support for Bloomberg on Election Day.

"I am supporting Mike Bloomberg," the message says, "because I admire his fierce independence and of course I love his commitment to the arts. As a lifelong Democrat, I am proud to support Mike Bloomberg."
