Not Over Yet: NYC To Hold Democratic Recount


de-balsio-thompsonHere’s what we know for sure in the New York City mayoral race: Bill de Blasio definitely won the most votes in the Democratic primary and Joe Lhota won the Republican nomination. But the Board of Elections said it would hold a recount in the Democratic race, since de Blasio captured 40.21 percent of the votes cast-hovering just barely above the magic threshold of the 40 percent needed to avoid a runoff.

Results of the recount are expected next week, giving second-place finisher Bill Thompson another week in the race. If a recount puts de Blasio under 40 percent, a runoff will be held on Oct. 1 with Thompson, who won 26 percent of the vote.

  1. The only important issue is MBP! For the first time in America, there is a law regulating our religious practice.
    How many otherwise estranged yidden will(or may have) refuse a bris, or at least insist on no MBP. it’s often very hard to convince a person to have or to give a child a bris as it is, how many have we lost because of the poison publicity surrounding this issue and the form people have to sign in NYC. I don’t think it will stop with this illegal disgusting regulation either. If there is more to come we will have a harder time fighting if we give in on MBP. To paraphrase what the Lubavitcher Rebbe has said in so many ways, the the governments in golus have some control of our bodies, but not our Torah.
