These days getting close to New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio takes some maneuvering. The Democratic underdog started with 10% of his party's vote, before winning the primary in a stunning upset in New York's mayoral race.
The race was tight. De Blasio was up against New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's favorite, Christine Quinn, and former congressman Anthony Weiner, who lost his lead after a second sexting scandal.
Since winning the primary, de Blasio has surged more than 40 points ahead of Republican contender Joe Lhota.
