Election goes forward despite Thompson’s concession
Democratic mayoral candidate William Thompson conceded and threw his support behind leading vote-getter and fellow Democrat Bill de Blasio.
However, because Thompson failed to withdraw from the race by the September 13 deadline, the mayoral runoff will continue to appear on the runoff ballot.
The runoff election is set for October 1, 2013.
De Blasio will face Republican Joe Lhota in the November 5 general election.
