Eric Adams Favored to Be NYC Mayor After Winning Democratic Primary

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Eric Adams Favored to Be NYC Mayor After Winning Democratic Primary” – below is their description.

Eric Adams won New York City’s Democratic mayoral primary, holding off a crowded field of challengers with a campaign focused on reducing crime and restoring the quality of life in a city that was pummeled by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Associated Press called the race on Tuesday for Adams, the Brooklyn borough president. He won 50.5% of the vote, edging out former sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia, who received 49.5% after eight rounds of voting. It was a difference of 8,426 votes.

The election of Adams, 60, would put the finance capital under the governance of a former New York Police Department captain who appealed to working-class voters. Adams, who served in the NYPD for 22 years, helped turn the race into a referendum on public safety just one year after nationwide Black Lives Matter protests spurred calls to defund the police. His primary win shows the strength of a diverse coalition he built that included unions, conservative voters and Black and Latino leaders.

“I know how we can turn around not only New York, but America,” Adams said Wednesday during an interview on CBS. “New York is going to show America how to run cities.”
