A Few Dozen Voters Select New Public Advocate, Comptroller


Okay, okay — turnout wasn't quite that low for the primary runoff election yesterday, but still, only about 7 percent of registered Democrats chose John Liu and Bill de Blasio as the party's nominees for comptroller and public advocate, respectively. Both are expected to easily roll over their Republican "competition" in November. Hell, even pseudo-Republican Mayor Bloomberg admits he doesn't know who the Republican candidates are and claims they have "no chance whatsoever." [Newsday]
