In the race for New York City mayor, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has taken the lead in this week's primary — with more than 80% of the votes counted in the country's largest-ever ranked-choice election.

But that's just the first step. Adams, who is a moderate, was the first choice for nearly a third of voters with progressives Maya Wiley and Kathryn Garcia coming in second and third with 22% and 19% of first-choice votes respectively.

So what does that mean? And what's next? Here & Now's Tonya Mosley talks to Alyssa Katz, deputy editor at The City, which covers New York City news and politics.

This segment aired on June 23, 2021.
