Brooklyn state Sen. Zellnor Myrie launches committee to explore 2025 challenge to Mayor Adams

Brooklyn state Senator Zellnor Myrie launched an exploratory committee Wednesday to challenge Mayor Eric Adams in next year’s Democratic mayoral primary.

Myrie — who represents central Brooklyn neighborhoods including Crown Heights, Park Slope and Prospect Lefferts Gardens — is the second potential candidate to take on the city’s incumbent chief executive in 2025. Former city Comptroller Scott Stringer, who has been fundraising since January, also launched an exploratory committee to run for mayor.
