Bill de Blasio claimed a commanding victory in New York City's Democratic primary race for mayor, while Anthony Weiner finished a distant fifth.
With 97 percent of the precincts reporting, it was not clear early Wednesday morning whether de Blasio had won the Democratic nomination outright.
The latest tally showed public advocate de Blasio had 40.2 percent of the vote, just a whisker more than the 40 percent needed to win the primary.
Controller Bill Thompson had 26 percent. If no candidate finishes with more than 40 in the primary, the top two must compete in a runoff election.
With tens of thousands of votes outstanding, including 19,000 paper ballots, it could take the Board of Elections at least several days to sort it all out.
