Bil Thompson Wants to See This Thing Through
"With 99 percent of precincts reporting, de Blasio finished Tuesday with 40.3 percent. He needs 40 percent to avoid a runoff. But as Politicker notes, "according to the latest Board of Election tally, there are nearly 80,000 paper ballots yet to be counted, including absentee, military and emergency ballots filled out by voters whose names could not be found on the rolls."

The Clintons "kindly both called to congratulate and I asked their advice and we'll see what happens going forward," he said."
