Curtis Sliwa wins Republican nomination for NYC mayoral race
CAN SLIWA BEAT DE BLASIO’S HOLD ON CRIME-RIDDEN NEW YORK CITY?
“Sliwa was declared the winner over restaurateur Fernando Mateo with an over 40-point lead with nearly 70 percent of votes tallied. Both candidates waged bitter campaigns centered around support for law enforcement amid a rise in violent crime in the city. Sliwa, who founded a group of volunteer crime fighters without any legal authorization, cast himself as uniquely qualified to reverse the spike and said he would hire 3,000 more police officers.”–The Hill
