It was a big night for Bill de Blaso and Joe Lhota, who have declared victories in the Democratic and Republican Mayoral Primaries respectively. As of 1:12am, with 97% of precincts reporting, de Blasio has taken 40.2% of votes– just breaking the 40% mark required to avoid a runoff. In his close-to-home fashion, he celebrated the win with family and supporters right at the Bell House, and by all accounts, the party is a good one.
Lizz Winstead, who captured the shot above, announced, “It’s the next first family of NYC, y’all!”
