It's de Blasio and Liu In NYC Primary Runoffs

Bill de Blasio won the primary runoff against Mark Green for the position of Public Advocate, and John Liu outpaced David Yassky for City Comptroller, NY1 reports.

Bill de Blasio won by a wide margin -- roughly 62 percent vs. 37 percent for Mark Green. Liu garnered 56 percent of the vote vs. Yassky's 44 percent.

All four candidates were generally considered well qualified. But voter turnout was extremely light.

The New York Times points out that Mr. Liu and Mr. de Blasio both enjoyed the support of the labor-backed Working Families Party.

The general election takes place Nov. 3.
