Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa scored an easy victory over restaurateur Fernando Mateo in Tuesday's Republican mayoral primary in New York City.
Sliwa received 68.9 percent of the Republican vote against 26.9 percent for Mateo, and more than 96 percent of the constituencies, according to preliminary results from the Board of Elections.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we just won the Republican Party in a landslide way,” Sliwa said Tuesday at the Empire Steakhouse downtown, according to the New York Post.
Sliwa made headlines in May when he embarked on a 24-hours-straight subway ride after challenging Democrats to join him on the journey, part of his bid to draw attention to his tough-on-crime policy posture.
