Three mayoral candidates will take the stage Tuesday night in the first general election debate.
While Mayor Bill de Blasio has polled higher than all his challengers, Assemb. Nicole Malliotakis and former NYPD detective Bo Dietl haven’t dropped their fights to defeat him in November.
Each have spent months criticizing de Blasio’s policies, as well as making personal attacks on the mayor, which will likely continue on debate night.
To make the night more interesting, play this drinking game as you watch the debate, which will air on NY1, NY1 Noticias and WNYC.
