Bill De Blasio! In Gowanus! Dancing!
And so we have a winner in the Democratic Primary for mayor of New York City! Now, before we all get too excited, De Blasio is hovering at just around 40% of the vote, and all votes are not in, so a run-off against William Thompson might end up happening. Then again, it might not. Too soon to tell. But! For just last night anyway, the mood was euphoric at the Bell House in Gowanus, which was where the De Blasio camp was stationed. And it's always good to partake in this kind of politcal euphoria while it's there, because usually, it's all too brief and soon again it will be politics as usual.
