The Republican-turned-independent is casting the other candidates as irrelevant and says his campaign is a lone effort to advertise his record since taking office in 2002.
He says the Democratic candidates who debated Wednesday night "wasted an opportunity" by attacking him instead of saying why they want to be mayor.
At least, he heard that's what they said. He didn't watch the debate because he said he wasn't curious to hear what his potential challengers had to say.
He did not participate in the debate because he is not facing a primary.
The Democratic primary is Sept. 15.
