When New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer announced last September he was running for mayor, he was widely considered the Democratic front-runner, positioning himself as the progressive candidate with a long history of public service and the managerial experience needed to lead an economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nine months later and with a June 22 primary approaching, Mr. Stringer’s campaign hasn’t picked up the steam it hoped.
He has routinely finished third in most mayoral polls behind two moderate Democrats—Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and former presidential candidate and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang—whose pro-policing platforms in response to the city’s surge in violent crime have helped drum up voter support.

An early front-runner, progressive Democrat Scott Stringer now trails two candidates in the primary and has been accused of sexual misconduct, an allegation he denies.
