NEW YORK (AP) — The candidates for New York City mayor have embarked on the final stretch — crisscrossing the five boroughs in the final days before the primary.
The major Democratic and Republican candidates have blanketed television and radio with commercials. They've been giving interviews to nearly anyone holding a microphone.
But they've also relied on old-fashioned retail politicking.
Democratic front runner Bill de Blasio (BLAH'-zee-oh) started Friday shaking hands at a Manhattan subway stop.
Christine Quinn is hitting eight events in Manhattan.
And Bill Thompson's team plans to have him campaign for 24 hours straight in advance of Tuesday's primary.
Republicans Joe Lhota (LOH'-tuh) and John Catsimatidis (kat-sih-mah-TEE'-deez) were each set to spend part of their day on Staten Island.
