Republican Paul Massey Drops Out Of Mayoral Race

His decision to leave the race leaves a single leading contender for the Republican nomination Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis of Staten Island

Massey's withdrawal from the race came just hours after debating his top challenger for the GOP mayoral nod, New York State Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, at a breakfast forum in Midtown Manhattan. "This journey has been wonderful because of the great New Yorkers I've met and all of the things my team and I have learned", Massey said in the statement.

Despite initially out-fundraising de Blasio with an impressive $1.6 million haul over the second half of 2016-with much of that coming from major real estate industry donors-Massey's campaign had been plagued by concerns that it was spending at a rate surpassing what it was bringing in, particular given its roster of highly-paid political consultants.

Massey said New Yorkers haven't heard the last of him.

The race for New York City mayor is thinning out as Paul Massey announced Wednesday he is ending his campaign.

Massey joins fellow GOP candidate John Catsimatidis, CEO of Gristedes Foods, who dropped out of the race in May.

While the mayor isn't in charge of the city's subways, run by the MTA, staying away from the scene of the derailment, de Blasio also refused to answer questions from the press.

In all, Massey collected $5.75 million in his primary bid to unseat de Blasio, a Democrat, and spent almost all of it, largely on campaign consultants.

"He said he plans to work with nonprofit organizations and continue public service".

"That is the biggest lack of leadership I've seen from an elected official in my career", Malliotakis said.

Massey, who established residency in the city only recently from Westchester, had attacked de Blasio's the stewardship of the city, citing issues including crime, quality of life, homelessness and taxes.

De Blasio's campaign didn't respond to a request for comment.
