A Runoff In the Public Advocate Race


Two candidates in the race for the Democratic primary for the office of public advocate, Letitia James and Daniel Squadron, will have to face off in a runoff election on Oct. 1.

Neither of the top two candidates got enough of the votes to win outright. The Associated Press was reporting that James, a Councilwoman from Brooklyn, had about 34 percent of the vote with 97 percent of precincts reporting as of 12:34 a.m. Squadron, a three-term state senator, had about 33 percent of the vote.

Three other candidates split the rest of the vote.

The little-known office of public advocate serves as an ombudsman and is second in line to the mayor.
