New York City Primaries

New York City Primaries”

De Blasio will now face Republican Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, of Staten Island, and private detective Bo Dietl, an independent, in November's general election. De Blasio added that he smoked "once or twice" in college, but that's about it.

"I think we did a pretty good job", Albanese told supporters gathered at a Park Slope eatery Tuesday night. "This was an effort where we were outspent nearly 40 to 1 by this mayor and the political machines".

Armed with the advantages of incumbency and a almost $8 million war chest, the latest polls indicate that Mr.de Blasio is likely to win with comfortable margins against former City Councilman Sal Albanese and several other little-known Democrats in the race.

Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez defeated five other candidates on Tuesday.

Democrats in Syracuse picked Juanita Perez Williams, a former assistant state attorney general and former associate dean of students at Syracuse University, as their nominee in a race to succeed incumbent Democratic Mayor Stephanie Miner, who is term-limited.

Only 23 percent of registered Democrats voted in the primary. That's the third lowest turnout for a Democratic mayoral primary in the city since the mid-'60s. Board of Elections spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez said on Tuesday afternoon that voter turnout in the city had been "light so far". He said he's confident despite being overwhelmingly outspent and out-marketed by de Blasio's team in advertising in the lead up to Tuesday.

Hizzoner, flanked by First Lady Chirlane McCray, arrived at the Park Slope public library in Brooklyn just before 8 a.m.to cast his ballot.

She says deportation protections for undocumented New Yorkers convicted of crimes are too lenient, and keep criminals on the streets.

Outside the library, the mayor and his wife were greeted by a group of about two dozen protesters chanting "Close Rikers now!" and "10 years sucks!" in response to de Blasio's plan to shutter the Bronx prison in the next decade.

But there were voters who came out to support the mayor. That support has stayed strong through his first term.

Interviewed at a senior center in predominantly black East New York, June Steinhauer, 73, said she voted for de Blasio because she believes he's earned re-election.
