TRD’s Mayoral Debate postponed

Sep.September 13, 2013 11:53 AM

The Real Deal‘s Mayoral Debate set for this Monday, Sept. 16 at Baruch College will be postponed because a winner has not been officially declared in the Democratic primary.

A rescheduled event date will be announced as soon as possible; tickets will be refunded in the interim. A spokesperson for Bill de Blasio, the Democratic front-runner, said the candidate wasn’t available until after the results of the primary were officially announced.

De Blasio has the lead in the primary with 40.3 percent of the vote (40 percent is required to win the primary), but thousands of absentee ballots and affidavit ballots remain uncounted, a process that won’t be completed until next week. De Blasio would need one-third of remaining ballots in his favor to win the primary, which appears likely.

Democrat second-place finisher Bill Thompson has yet to concede the race.

The debate between Republican Joe Lhota, former head of the MTA, and de Blasio, the public advocate, was scheduled to take place at Baruch’s Performing Arts Center at 5:30 p.m.

Ticket refunds will be done automatically and an email will be issued.
