Stringer applauds ex-Gov. in NYC comptroller race

NEW YORK (AP) — Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer has applauded former Gov. Eliot Spitzer for running a hard-fought campaign in the Democratic primary for New York City comptroller.

Speaking to hundreds of supporters in a Manhattan bar Tuesday night, Stringer then asked the audience to give the ex-attorney general a round of applause.

Stringer said Spitzer had phoned him earlier in the night to concede the race.

He called the night a proud one. He also said a broad coalition of groups ranging from labor unions to young democrats was responsible for his campaign's success.

Spitzer resigned from Congress in 2008 amid a prostitution scandal.

Stringer will face a Republican and other candidates in the November general election.
