NEW YORK (AP) — Republican Party nominee for New York City mayor Joe Lhota is urging his opponents to get behind his campaign.
In his victory speech Tuesday night, Lhota said his campaign would work to strengthen the city's schools and continue to expand the economy through tax breaks for entrepreneurs.
He also said he would continue the controversial stop-and-frisk tactics.
The former head of the Metropolitan Transit Authority defeated billionaire grocery store magnate John Catsimatidis (kat-sih-mah-TEE'-dihz) and nonprofit head George McDonald.
He will face the Democratic nominee on Nov. 5.
