Nicole Malliotakis, the Republican candidate for mayor in New York City, says voters are “disenchanted” by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Malliotakis won the Republican nomination in Tuesday’s primary, while de Blasio claimed the Democratic nod. But Malliotakis tells WOR’s “Len Berman and Todd Schnitt in the Morning” that Democratic voters aren’t rallying behind the mayor.
“What we really know from these numbers is that roughly 11 percent of those enrolled in the Democratic party came out to vote for Bill de Blasio and I believe that number was so low because people are disenchanted. They’re not happy with the quality of life in our city,” Malliotakis said.
Bo Dietl, who is running for mayor as an Independent candidate, called Malliotakis a “non-entity.” He told WOR’s “Len Berman and Todd Schnitt in the Morning” he plans to defeat de Blasio by winning over Democratic voters.
“The people of New York do not like de Blasio,” Dietl said. (Thumbnail Credit: Getty Images)
