Andrew Yang Concedes Democratic Mayoral Primary

Andrew Yang Concedes Democratic Mayoral Primary

      Andrew Yang has just conceded the race in the Democratic mayoral primary.

     “I am not going to be the next mayor of New York City, based upon the numbers that have come in tonight,” Yang just told a crowd of supporters in Midtown Manhattan.

     “I am conceding this race,” he said. “Though we are not sure, ultimately, who our next mayor will be but whomever that person is, I will be very happy to work with them to help improve the lives of New Yorkers.”

     At 11:15pm, with 81.17% of New York City precincts reporting election results, with 30.7% of the vote, Eric Adams is leading the pack. For the first time, Maya Wiley, has surged into second place, with 21.5% of the vote. Katherine Garcia has slipped to third place with 20.6% of the vote.

     Tonight's results will not be official because the Board of Elections (BOE) will only begin to count absentee and affidavit ballots on June 29, and the board does not expect to announce official results until July 12.
