    Mayor-elect Eric Adams’ victory came with a hefty price tag. Over the course of the campaign, he raised just over $19.1 million, more than half of which was in public matching funds, and spent about $18.1 million, according to the latest financial disclosures. He also benefited from nearly $8.2 million in independent expenditures in his favor, with little outside spending to oppose him.

    Adams was all but assured to win after emerging as the Democratic mayoral nominee from a crowded field

    Leaders of New York’s Conservative Party, one of just two so-called third parties in the state with a ballot line, have been jubilant about the 2021 general election results. The party helped win victories in several local races and to defeat three ballot questions that would have made changes to legislative redistricting and voting rights. But the party went its own way in nominating candidates for citywide positions and key races on Staten Island,

    Voter turnout in the 2021 New York City general election was slightly lower than the already-depressed 2017 and 2013 elections.

    Every four years, all of city government is on the ballot, including Mayor, other citywide offices, borough president positions, and the entire 51-seat City Council. This election was the first time since 2013 that most of those positions, including Mayor, were open due to term limits.

    This year, just under 20% of the 5.6 million registered New York City voters cast

    With relatively little money in the bank and only a tenuous tie to his newfound party, Curtis Sliwa, the Republican nominee for mayor, is running on name recognition and four-decade history of catching headlines. But in public appearances and on his website he has put forth an outline of his vision for New York City with policies that span the political spectrum.

    Curtis Sliwa, the Republican nominee for New York City mayor, has portrayed himself as a police advocate and crimefighter dating back to his founding of the Guardian Angels in the late 1970s. But the image Sliwa has crafted of himself as the original civilian crimefighter distorts his role with the renegade patrol group.

    While the Angels – a group of largely young African-American and Latino New Yorkers that began patrolling subways – may have been the most ...

    With under 50 days until primary day, June 22, the race to become the next Mayor of New York City has been picking up steam, though far greater attention continues to be on the crowded and competitive Democratic primary, in large part because it is likely to choose the next mayor based on the party’s very heavy (nearly 8 to 1) voter enrollment advantage. But New York had two mayors elected as Republicans who led the city for five terms from 1994 through 2013, and there is a competitive GOP primary this year, open to the

It remains uncertain if there will be a contested primary as the party and all the potential contenders are waiting to see whether billionaire mogul John Catsimatidis will jump into the race.

But while that long list includes some prominent current elected officials, a few former public servants and several lesser known contenders, it contains few Republicans.
