De Blasio secures Democratic nomination in mayor's race

De Blasio secures Democratic nomination in mayor's race

Mayor Bill de Blasio faces a crowded primary field as he seeks a second term as the leader of New York City.

Trump has fueled racial divisions across America that have helped shape de Blasio's push to become the city's first Democrat re-elected mayor since Ed Koch in 1985.

De Blasio made two public appearances on Tuesday morning - one of them to vote in his old neighborhood of Park Slope - before hitting the gym and visiting his favorite Brooklyn patisserie.

In a July 27 poll conducted by Baruch College and NY1 news, 3.5 percent of Democrats polled said they would vote for Albanese compared with 57 percent for de Blasio.

The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 7.

"I think it's going to take some time to get people back in the habit", he said.

"It has been an honor these four years to be the mayor of this city, and my message to the people of this city today is, this is your city", he said, using this year's campaign slogan.

Eric Gonzalez won the Democratic primary for Brooklyn District Attorney, the Wall St.

Most party primaries in NY state are closed contests, meaning a voter must be a registered member of the party in order to cast a ballot.

"Currently no...some days I wish I did", de Blasio said with a laugh after being asked if he still smokes.

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.

Turnout was likely to be lower than it was when de Blasio prevailed in 2013 - and when the race for the open seat was jam-packed with candidates and controversy, thanks to Anthony Weiner's mayoral bid and Eliot Spitzer's city controller run.

Maryann Basil both voted and worked as a poll worker at the site. He's up against Sal Albanese, Richard Bashner, Robert Gangi and Michael Tolkin.
