Democratic candidate for New York City Mayor Maya Wiley speaks to voters and media while campaigning at the Co-op City housing complex in the Bronx borough of New York City, New York, U.S., June 7, 2021. REUTERS/Mike Segar/File PhotoFor months, a trio of liberal Democratic candidates in New York City's mayoral race has vied for the mantle of progressive standard-bearer in a crowded field. "New York is not a progressive city," said Christina Greer, a political science professor at Fordham University. "We know there are a lot of Democratic voters who call themselves progressive and support progressive values but think AOC is a little too far left." "She's clearly the progressive candidate that can win in this race," said Gabby Seay, the political director for the union, which represents healthcare workers.

Andrew Yang, democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks during a campaign appearance at City Hall Park in New York City, U.S., May 24, 2021. The city, Yang said on Thursday, "is failing us. But New York's mayoral contest suggests a different political reality is taking hold among Democrats as urban areas nationwide dig out from the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic triggered massive job losses, left streets deserted, strained local budgets and contributed to a national rise in violent crime. This is a harbinger of what’s to come,” said Douglas Schoen, a Democratic pollster and longtime adviser to former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

FILE PHOTO: Andrew Yang, Democratic candidate for mayor of New York City, speaks after being endorsed by U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) in the Queens borough of New York, U.S., May 10, 2021. “I want people to look around our city and say that things are cleaner, things are safer, things are more vibrant, the opportunities are back - there’s a sense of optimism back in New York City,” Yang said at a campaign appearance on Monday. Similar to his presidential campaign, Yang has proposed a number of innovations, including a basic income of $2,000 a year to 500,000 poor residents. “To move forward, we cannot continue being derailed by the dangerous and violent behavior in our city,” Adams told reporters on Monday in Manhattan. “People aren’t going to come back to work on mass transit if they’re going to get mugged,” said Kathryn Wylde, who heads the Partnership for New York City, a prominent business organization.
