The Democratic Primary Winner in New York Mayor Race is Eric Adams


Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President, has been declared as the winner of the New York City’s Democratic Primary that was recently held in the city. The former police captain won on a campaign that managed to strike a balance between fighting crime which is always high in NYC and ending racial injustice among police which is also present, despite reforms. Although the election was conducted on June 22, absentee ballots and the rank choice system delayed the announcement of the results.


Adams is considered a favorite to win the mayoral elections in New York City where Democrats outnumber Republicans 7 to 1. He will face Republican Curtis Silwa who is the founder of the Guardian Angels. If he wins, he will become the second black Mayor of NYC. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is completing his second term and is therefore term limited as per the city’s rules.


Adams has been leading in the count from election day and on Tuesday, the updated results were released which showed that Eric Adams had got the most votes with former New York City Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia in the second position. Adams won by 8,426 votes.


Adams was declared the winner on July 6, the same day that Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a disaster emergency due to the huge increase in gun violence. New York City has already seen an 8.5 percent increase in murders this year when compared with 2021. Shootings have also increased by almost 38 percent. Gun sales across the nation have also hit record highs.


Earlier in May, after three people including a 4-year-old child were shot in Times Square NYC. Adams had said that the city would not recover if time was turned back and there was an increase violence, particularly in gun violence.


After the results were declared, Adams released a statement that said that they should focus on winning in the mayoral election to be held in November, so they could deliver on the promise that New York City holds for the future of all New Yorkers.
