Fresh off a victorious U.S. Supreme Court ruling, New Yorker Edie Windsor is endorsing City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the race for mayor.

In a campaign ad, she says she's supporting Quinn not just for her leadership on LGBT issues, but because she understands middle class issues and has a record of producing results for New Yorkers.

"She comes of middle class background herself, and has true respect and compassion for the struggling middle class, as well as the struggling working class and the struggling non-working class today," Windsor notes in the ad.

The Supreme Court ruled in Windsor's favor yesterday over federal benefits for same-sex couples.
