The second official debate among the eight major Democratic candidates for New York City mayor will take place on Wednesday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The candidates are Eric Adams, Shaun Donovan, Kathryn Garcia, Raymond J. McGuire, Dianne Morales, Scott M. Stringer, Maya Wiley and Andrew Yang.
The event takes place as the competition moves into its final weeks leading up to the June 22 primary, at a crucial time when the dynamics of the race and voter preferences still seem fluid. The first debate was held virtually, and the face-to-face meeting on Wednesday will give candidates clearer opportunities to stand out with outstanding moments – and to better land the criticisms of one another over the past few weeks.
The state of the race is now also different from the last debate in several respects.
The campaign by the leftist candidate of the field, Ms. Morales, is facing civil unrest and disillusionment. And Ms. Garcia, the former Hygiene Supervisor, has gained prominence in the limited polls, placing her as the front runner alongside Mr. Yang and Mr. Adams. Other candidates, like Ms. Wiley, want to build a similar dynamic.
Here are some of the ways you can watch and keep track of the debate:
New York Times reporters will provide commentary and analysis throughout the evening.
