NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bill Thompson’s campaign for mayor might be entering its final hours, but he’s holding out hope that he’ll still be in the race after all ballots are counted this week.
The former city comptroller finished second in Tuesday’s Democratic primary. If front-runner, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, receives 40 percent of the vote, he would avoid an Oct. 1 runoff against Thompson.
Some have urged Thompson, who has 26 percent of the votes counted so far, to bow out. But Thompson has vowed to remain in the race.
