Mayor Bill de Blasio appeared to be on his way to a decisive win on Tuesday in the Democratic primary in New York City, as he moved closer to securing a second term.
Mr. de Blasio was declared the winner by The Associated Press at 9:18 p.m., 18 minutes after the polls closed.
No major Democrat was willing to take on the incumbent mayor, and he faced a group of underfinanced, little-known rivals. As a result, the contest had all the urgency of a preseason football game, generating little interest among voters.
Mr. de Blasio will now focus on the general election, on Nov. 7, when he will face the Republican candidate, Nicole Malliotakis, an assemblywoman from Staten Island, and Bo Dietl, a former police detective running as an independent.
In the general election, the mayor will again enjoy significant advantages. Democrats outnumber Republicans by more than six to one among New York City voters who designated a party affiliation.
