NEW YORK (AP) — Bill de Blasio is holding a clear lead in New York City’s mayoral Democratic primary.
That’s according to early and incomplete voting returns Tuesday night. It’s unclear, though, whether the public advocate would top the 40 percent threshold needed to avoid a runoff. With 45 percent of precincts reporting, de Blasio has about 39 percent of the total vote. Former city Comptroller Bill Thompson has 26 percent, and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has 15 percent.
They were followed by current city Comptroller John Liu at 8 percent and Weiner at 5 percent.
If no candidate receives 40 percent of the vote, the top two finishers advance to an Oct. 1 runoff.
The general election to replace Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who served 12 years, is Nov. 5.
