After two weeks of waiting – and a controversy – we have a winner. 

Former New York City police captain Eric Adams has been declared the victor in the city's Democratic mayoral primary. 

Adams edged out a large field in the city's first major race to use ranked-choice voting. 

If elected this fall, he would become the second Black mayor of NYC.
