Voters in New York City are poised to decide whether to give Mayor Bill de Blasio a second term leading the nation’s largest city.
The Democrat is expected to prevail in a crowded race on Tuesday.
The mayor’s first term was dogged by feuds with Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and investigations into campaign donations and pay-to-play politics.
De Blasio’s toughest challenger is Republican state Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis of Staten Island, who has called the mayor ineffective. He also faces several third-party candidates including private detective and TV commentator Bo Dietl.
New York City polls close at 9:00 p.m. ET.
