Today In Politics: De Blasio and Lhota Face Off in Second Debate


Democrat Bill de Blasio and Republican Joe Lhota will participate in their second mayoral debate tonight.

The debate comes as the latest Quinnipiac poll shows de Blasio has extended his commanding lead over Lhota. Errol Louis, host of NY1's "Road to City Hall" said despite what the poll numbers show, voters do you have a way of surprising you and if Bill de Blasio is elected there's a lot to learn about what kind of mayor he will be.

"Let's assume he maintains his lead and becomes mayor, you've got to explore a little bit what it is he rally stands for because he campaigned on maybe five different issues but there are are lot more than five facing New Yorkers," Louis said.
