It looks like Mayor de Blasio may get a challenge from his left. Maybe only symbolic right now but not insignificant.
Potential foe emerges on mayor's left
Robert Gangi, director of the Police Reform Organizing Project, says he is mulling a run for mayor. Advocates for police reform are beyond frustrated with what they see as Mayor Bill de Blasio's refusal to implement police accountability and transparency measures, and contend that minorities continue to be treated worse than whites by the city's criminal-justice system.
A challenge from the left, however symbolic, would be a blow to the man elected to "end a stop-and-frisk era that unfairly targets people of color," as his son Dante put it. —Rosa Goldensohn
