The Democratic candidates running for mayor were all over the five boroughs on Thursday, presenting their closing arguments to voters before they head to the polls on Tuesday.

"It's another full day for both," she told WNYC's Soterios Johnson. "Thompson and Quinn have about twelve campaign stops today between 7 am and 7 pm, so it's the end slug of just blitzing the entire city."
