NEW YORK (AP) — Bill de Blasio and Joe Lhota are far from the only candidates on the ballot for New York City mayor.
The two major party nominees will be joined by a collection of lesser-known hopefuls, many of whom are representing novelty parties like the Tax Wall Street Party and the Rent is Too Damn High Party.
But while they have little chance to win, there is a pair of independent candidates who could have an impact on determining the next mayor.
Experts believe Adolfo Carrion Jr., the former Bronx Borough President, could cut into Hispanics' support for de Blasio, a Democrat.
And Jack Hidary, a millionaire tech entrepreneur, is saying he'll follow the data-driven approach of outgoing mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The general election is Nov. 5.
