Event Of The Day: Democratic Mayoral Debate


The leading Democratic candidates for mayor are expected to participate in a televised primary debate tonight.

The one-hour debate will air on WABC/Channel 7 and be streamed online at 7 p.m.

The host has confirmed that former Congressman Anthony Weiner, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, former Comptroller Bill Thompson and Comptroller John Liu are expected to attend.

Former City Councilman Sal Albanese is not allowed to participate in tonight’s debate because he did not meet the New York City Campaign Finance Board's fund-raising requirement. Fellow Democratic candidate, the Rev. Erick Salgado, was also not invited to participate.

The debate will likely touch on a variety of hot button issues including yesterday's ruling that held that stop-and-frisk practices are unconstitutional.
