Bragg poised to win Manhattan DA primary as Weinstein concedes


Alvin Bragg declared victory late Friday, July 2, in the hard-fought Manhattan District Attorney Democratic primary after his top challenger Tali Farhadian Weinstein conceded the race.

Unlike the other city primary races, the DA race did not have rank choice voting (RCV) as it is technically a state and not city office.

“This has been a long journey that started in Harlem. And today, that 15-year old boy who was stopped numerous times at gunpoint by the police is the Democratic nominee to be Manhattan District Attorney,” Bragg said in a statement.
