Eric Gioia’s bid to be the next public advocate came up short earlier this evening.
Bill deBlasio and Mark Green pulled in 33% and 31% of the vote respectively, and face a runoff for the nomination. Meanwhile, local (Sunnyside/Woodside) politician Eric Gioia came in third with a solid 18%.
While Gioia had a well-organized and funded campaign, it was a very difficult challenge to take on the big Manhattan names such as Mark Green. At just 36-years of age, however, Gioia will be back in the mix.
