NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Bill de Blasio has his nomination.
Bill Thompson conceded the Democratic primary race on Monday, setting up a de Blasio-Joe Lhota showdown for all the mayoral marbles in November.
Thompson said at a news conference that he was proud to endorse de Blasio as the Democratic nominee.
“I am proud to stand here today and support Bill de Blasio to be the next mayor of the City of New York,” Thompson said. “Bill de Blasio and I want to move our city forward in the same direction. We share the fundamental same views and values — this is bigger than either one of us.”
