Wow. Tight results in the NYC mayoral election (RCV just came out): Kathryn Garcia barely beats Maya Wiley in the penultimate round, then closes most but not all of the gap with Eric Adams in the final round.— Taniel (@Taniel) June 29, 2021
Adams 51%, Garcia 49%. A gap of 16K votes.
(120K+ ballots remain.)

Adams may not end up being the new face of the Democratic party, as he said in a presser. But his votes plus Garcia taking second position don’t undercut the take that the “defund” position was not the majority one for Dem primary voters in NYC.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) June 29, 2021
With ranked-choice voting factored in, Eric Adams is clinging to a narrow lead over Kathryn Garcia in the Democratic race for mayor, 51% to 49%. More than 120,000 absentee ballots will determine the outcome of the race. Wall-to-wall coverage coming now @NY1— Bob Hardt (@bobhardt) June 29, 2021
NYC MAYOR RANKED CHOICE RESULTS ARE UP! (only early + in-person votes, no absentees yet)— Ryan Matsumoto (@ryanmatsumoto1) June 29, 2021
Eric Adams 51.9%
Kathryn Garcia 48.9%
This is a real race folks. The uncounted absentee ballots have the potential to put Garcia over the top.
Charges against the Trump Org expected this or next week!— Lindy Li (@lindyli) June 29, 2021
The Trump Org is nearly indistinguishable from the Trump family
Execs include Trump, Junior, Ivanka, Eric, Weisselberg
Who else thinks Trump will screw his kids to save himself?
NYC MAYOR ABSENTEE BALLOT MATH:— Ryan Matsumoto (@ryanmatsumoto1) June 29, 2021
Right now, Adams leads Garcia 51.1% to 48.9% in the final round of ranked choice without absentee ballots.
There are 941832 votes counted and ~124k absentee ballots.
Garcia would need to win absentees about 58.4% to 41.6% to win.
Annnnnnd bettors now think Garcia is going to win the NYC mayoral race. Flipped right around Adams' panicky statement. pic.twitter.com/jAjVvNRVhP— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) June 29, 2021
