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.

  • this is amateurish and blatantly biased.

    shameful coverage of a serious election with very serious consequences, especially for boroklyn’s redevelopment future.

  • @politico It’s true. I’m really biased against your boy Anthony Weiner. But it wasn’t just me! It was also 95% of the NYC Democrats who voted yesterday. So, while it must be hard for you, you’re just going to have to learn to move on. Good luck!
