    Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams on Wednesday revealed the city’s worst kept secret — he is running to replace Bill de Blasio as the next mayor of New York City. The former NYPD officer, who has already raised nearly $2.6 million for a run he has long been teasing, made the announcement via a virtual event to officially toss his hat into the crowded ring for the 2021 mayoral race. His campaign will be focused on appealing to more moderate portions of the party, including predominately black precincts in Central Brooklyn and southeastern Queens, experts say.

    PORTLAND, Ore. - The mayor of Portland, Oregon, declared victory Wednesday after a bruising campaign that sandwiched him between a tough challenger to his political left and anger from moderate voters and business owners frustrated with five months of near-nightly protests that made the city a frequent lightning rod for President Donald Trump. Mayor Ted Wheeler said he had a clear mandate with more than 90% of the vote counted and was energized by his win. If his lead holds, Wheeler would become the first mayor to win a second term in the notoriously hard-to-govern city in 20 years. The...

    Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren was indicted Friday on charges she broke campaign finance rules and committed fraud during her reelection campaign three years ago. Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley also announced charges against Warren’s campaign treasurer, Albert Jones Jr., and the treasurer of her political action committee, Rosalind Brooks-Harris. The indictment dramatically increases political peril for Warren, who was already facing calls to resign for the city’s handling of the suffocation of Daniel Prude. The Democrat is midway through her second term as the first female and second Black mayor of Rochester, a city of more than 200,000 by...
