New York City is currently going through a contentious primary contest to decide the Democrat candidate for mayor. Because the city is deep blue, that winner will undoubtedly go on to victory in the general election. It doesn’t matter that crime has skyrocketed, the city’s economy is in shambles, or that freedom has been quashed heavily during the pandemic by the current Democrat administration. Partisanship reigns supreme, and the days of someone like Rudy Giuliani winning are over.

In a surprise move, Yang dropped the nice guy act and went back at Adams, accusing him of race-baiting.

Today Andrew Yang said of Eric Adams that the “last thing
