Adams takes fragile lead in NYC Democratic mayoral primary

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams appeared to take a fragile lead in New York City’s Democratic mayoral primary, but it could be weeks before it becomes clear who is actually on top in the first citywide election to use ranked choice voting.

_Politics I will do whatever I can to VOTE these GOP OUT of OFFICE!!! You try and take away and silence my vote, then I’ll place all my power in voting these GOP OUT of their seat!!! Let’s make this CLEAR, now the GOP are in for a FIGHT!!! VoterSuppression
_Politics That headline doesn’t make sense. If 200k absentee votes remain to be counted, as well as all the ranked votes of those whose first choices didn’t make it, then there is no lead, fragile or otherwise.

Voting ends, wait for results begins in NYC mayoral primary

Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who was far behind in early returns in the Democratic primary for New York City mayor, conceded about two hours after polls closed and vowed to work with the next mayor.

I thought stimmy checks are like UBI. Lol America. Living on the ideas of Andrew Yang, but somehow trying so hard not to vote him in
Goodbye Yang. He seems like he has good intentions but some people are cut out for politics and some are not. Maybe he should work behind the scenes in politics. As a candidate he does not seem to be electable.
