The New York Daily News reports:
Eric Adams appeared on the brink of winning the city’s Democratic mayoral race on Tuesday after a pivotal release of absentee ballot results placed him at the top of the pack by a razor-thin margin over Kathryn Garcia.
The Brooklyn borough president led Garcia by just 8,426 ballots after more than 120,000 newly counted absentee ballots were added to the unofficial Board of Elections tally.
The winner in the Democratic primary is set to face Curtis Sliwa, a Republican, in the November general election. That race is widely expected to be a one-sided affair in deep-blue New York.
Eric Adams maintained a narrow lead in the New York City mayoral primary race on Tuesday, according to a new count that included thousands of absentee ballots. Some ballots remain uncounted, and an official result won’t be ready for another week or more. https://t.co/McXLpGLQqX
