The first official Democratic mayoral primary debate takes place tonight, with candidates Sal Albanese, Bill de Blasio, John Liu, Christine Quinn, Erick Salgado, Bill Thompson and Anthony Weiner. If the first televised mayoral debate is any indication of the direction this one will go, Quinn will be the focus of attacks. With the Sept. 10 primary approaching, the other candidates will be trying to position themselves to at least win a spot in the likely runoff election. Gotham Gazette will be streaming the live NY1 video broadcast that begins at 7 p.m. Radio listeners can tune into WNYC.
