Several names are being tossed around as to who might challenge Mayor Eric Adams in the 2025 Democratic primary — with candidates looking to pounce on the mayor’s weakened position stemming from a series of escalating controversies.
Some of the top names being floated include state Sens. Jessica Ramos (D-Queens) and Zellnor Myrie (D-Brooklyn), as well as Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso. Ramos appears to be the most widely talked about prospective candidate. She has been a staunch Adams critic, often publicly taking him to task for his handling of the migrant crisis.
