In recent weeks on News Closeup,  we’ve met some of the contenders in this year’s mayoral race.

With almost a dozen candidates — Democrats, Republicans and Independents — in the running, it’s shaping up as a competitive battle for the primaries.

In this installment, Marvin Scott welcomes Democrat Bill Thompson — the former city comptroller who nearly beat Mayor Bloomberg when he ran for mayor four years ago — losing by a mere five points.  This is the first mayoral election in the city in two decades that an incumbent is not in the running.
