Bill de Blasio will be the first Democratic mayor in New York City in two decades, easily defeating Republican Joe Lhota by running a campaign that rejected the politics of his predecessor, Michael Bloomberg.
Known for its liberal politics, New York City has not elected a Democrat in the last five mayoral elections, with Bloomberg serving three terms and Rudolph Giuliani before him serving two.
