The Democratic mayoral candidates will take the debate stage for one final time Tuesday night before next week's primary election.
In this last full week of the campaign, including Monday's annual West Indian Day in Brooklyn, the candidates have been making their closing arguments to voters, many of whom may just be tuning in to the race for the first time all summer.
Brigid Bergin, WNYC's politics and City Hall reporter, said the candidates will be making their closing arguments to voters tonight. Since Public Advocate Bill de Blasio will go into the debate as the frontrunner, Bergin said he is likely to be targeted for attacks by the rest of the field.
"Expect him to take a lot of heat," said Bergin, adding that the only event on de Blasio's public schedule Tuesday was the debate, so there was a good chance the candidate was in serious debate prep mode.
