With primary Election Day exactly a week away, The New York Observer‘s editorial board has weighed in on the three citywide races: mayor, comptroller and public advocate.
For the mayor’s race at the top of the ticket, the board has endorsed former Comptroller Bill Thompson in the Democratic primary and former MTA Chairman Joe Lhota as the Republican nominee.
The board also weighed in on the two other city primaries. In the high-profile race to become the city’s next comptroller, the board backed Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. For public advocate, they supported State Senator Daniel Squadron. Both are Democrats.
