Romney and Bloomberg meet in New York

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg met Tuesday morning with Mitt Romney in the Manhattan offices of the mayor's foundation.

NBC News confirmed news that the independent mayor met with Romney, who's spending a busy day in the city. A source in the mayor's office said that Bloomberg advocated for his usual agenda of gun control, budget reform, education, the economy and the manner in which the federal government treats cities.

A source described the meeting between the two as "friendly," though it yielded no endorsement. It's unclear whether he'll do so at all this year, and Bloomberg maintains ties to the Obama administration; he golfed last Friday with Vice President Biden.

The stop with Bloomberg was part of a busy morning for Romney in New York City. His schedule included a CBS interview this morning, his Bloomberg meeting, attending a memorial for the late journalist Mike Wallace, and a meeting soon with former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani (who recently endorsed Romney).

UPDATE, 1:07 p.m.: Romney's day will continue in Philadelphia, where he'll host a fundraiser.
