August 22, 2017 - Previewing the First Mayoral Debate

On Wednesday, August 23, Mayor Bill de Blasio and former City Council Member Sal Albanese will meet for the first debate of the 2017 Democratic mayoral primary. De Blasio is seen as a heavy favorite heading toward the September 12 vote, but Albanese has a major opportunity given the one-on-one, broadcast debate that will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday on NY1 television and WNYC radio (also brought to you by other co-sponsors Citizens Union and Politico New York). On this episode of Max & Murphy, Ben and Jarrett discuss what they are watching for at the debate, what the candidates need to do, and other key dynamics.
