Herzog welcomes challenge from TA mayor

The possibility that Tel Aviv mayor Ron Huldai may challenge opposition leader Isaac Herzog for the Labor leadership received mixed reactions from the party’s MKs Sunday, a day after he said he would announce whether he will run in the fall.

Speaking at a cultural event in his city Saturday, Huldai said national politics turned him off but he was mulling a run because many people have called upon him to enter the fray.

Herzog said he had great respect for Huldai, who endorsed him in the 2013 Labor primary in which Herzog beat incumbent Shelly Yacimovich. He has not yet decided whether to advance the Labor leadership race, which must be held by May 2016 according to the party’s constitution.
