Mayor Bill de Blasio has easily won the Democratic nomination, as he continues his quest for a second term in office.
De Blasio won more than 74 percent of the vote against multiple challengers who never posed a serious threat. He touted his accomplishments in his first term during a victory speech last night, but says there’s more work to do.
Thank you, NYC! Next up, the general election on November 7. Let’s continue to make this your city.— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) September 13, 2017
“No matter how much I love this place, no matter how much good I’ve seen, I do not accept the status quo. We’ve got more work to do my friends,” de Blasio said.
De Blasio will now square off against Nicole Malliotais, who secured the Republican nomination after running unopposed. Sal Albanese, one of the mayor’s opponents in the primary, will also be on the November ballot. He secured the Reform Party nomination, so he’ll be on the ballot in November.
