NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's wild and grueling mayoral primary campaign is in its last hours as voters finally head to the polls. Mayor Michael Bloomberg never offered an endorsement in the race but the campaign has been defined by his legacy. The Republican mayoral hopefuls are largely promising to maintain his policies, while the Democrats have offered a sharply different approach. The Democratic front runner, public advocate Bill de Blasio, is hoping to eclipse the 40 percent mark that would avoid a runoff. Polls show Christine Quinn and Bill Thompson are battling for second, while Anthony Weiner is languishing in a distant fourth. Ex-MTA chair Joe Lhota and grocery store magnate John Catismatidis are battling for the GOP nod. Polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 9 p.m. on Tuesday.
