Bill de Blasio is ready to run in November and on Tuesday night, he got a victory in the democratic primary.
The Public Advocate won the five boroughs pretty handily, but the final numbers aren t yet in and the numbers are important.
What we know at this point is de Blasio stands taller than his democratic challengers in the primary vote count. Among his competition, de Blasio surged ahead in recent polls leading up to Tuesday s primary.
Although the final numbers aren t in, de Blasio is already looking toward November s election against republican challenger and former MTA Chair Joe Lhota. What we have achieved here tonight,Wes Welker Jersey,High School Football Player Violently Strikes Oppo, and what we ll do in the next round of his campaign,broncos jerseys, won t just change how things look inside City Hall. But will change the policies that have left so many of our fellow New Yorkers out of City Hall, de Blasio said Tuesday night.
But, supporters of Bill Thompson are not giving in just yet. Although at last count de Blasio seemed to have just above the 40% needed to avoid a runoff, Thompson sounded anything but defeated. Tonight, it s for everyone of you out there who have ever been counted out. For everyone who has ever been told their dreams are too big and the world doesn t have enough room for them. Tonight is for you,Eric Decker Jersey, Thompson told an energetic crowd.
Absentee and paper ballots have yet to be counted. Votes that have been counted need to be certified. Those numbers could tip the scales either way.
He may have started celebrating his victory, but Bill de Blasio won t be resting easy until it is made official Monday.
