New York City's mayor race: Eric Adams has initial lead, Andrew Yang concedes

Source: USA Today

NEW YORK The polls have closed in the Big Apple as New Yorkers voted Tuesday to pick their next mayor, but, with the city's new ranked choice voting system, don't expect to know the winner tonight.

Brooklyn Borough President and former police captain Eric Adams was leading Tuesday in partial results released in the New York City mayoral primary, but only the first choice preferences of early and in-person votes were being released for now.

With more than 96% of those votes counted, Adams had 31% of first-choice votes; former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio Maya Wiley was in second with 22%; and former sanitation department head Kathryn Garcia and entrepreneur turned political hopeful Andrew Yang trailed in third and fourth with about 20% and 12%, respectively.

Yang, who was once considered Adams' toughest competition in the race, conceded Tuesday night based on the initial return. "I am not going to be the next mayor of New York City," he said.

1. Yang concedes: Geroge Carlin was right

We need to stop voting for these rich (Carlin word) that don't care about you.

Enough of plutocratic democracy.

5. I wouldn't call Yang uber wealthy.

His net worth is estimated between 1-4 million. Many politicians are worth much more than him.

8. Yes! Let's say that he doesn't have middle class struggles

He has enough when minimum wage is still not a living wage.

9. Hopefully Wiley and Garcia split the second place votes

This way no one can catch Adams and he wins.
