Curtis Sliwa, long known in New York City as founder of the Guardian Angels anti-crime group, scored a big victory Tuesday night in the city’s Republican mayoral primary.
With results in from more than 82% of districts, Sliwa had collected 23,698 votes, or support from more than 69% of the city’s GOP voters, the New York Post reported.
“Curtis won and we want to unite the Republican Party and we hope Fernando Mateo will join us,” Sliwa campaign adviser Rob Cole told the Post, referring to Sliwa’s top GOP competitor.
During a campaign event in April, Sliwa called for refunding the city’s police department by restoring $1 billion that the city council had shifted from police to education and social services programs.
