New York (CNN) – Five of six Democratic candidates vying to become the next mayor of New York City took to the airwaves Tuesday night in the last of three debates. The hourlong televised debate continued for another half hour online, one week before the primary.

(CNN) - Candidates vying to become the next mayor of New York displayed deep disagreements in a televised debate Wednesday over the city's controversial stop-and-frisk searches, which a federal judge said earlier this month violate the Constitution by targeting minorities.
While all of the Democratic candidates have proposed reforms to the policy, frontrunners Christine Quinn, the City Council speaker: and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio sparred over the substance of how the controversial policy would change under their watch.
(CNN) - Another poll indicates continued shuffling in the Democratic race for New York City's mayor.
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn are tied at 24% among likely primary voters, while former Rep. Anthony Weiner remains at the back of the pack, according to the new NBC4/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll released Thursday.
(CNN) - Anthony Weiner's top opponents for New York City's Democratic mayoral race each got a chance to address the former congressman in a major televised debate Tuesday night, but City Council Speaker Christine Quinn took more than one shot at the flagging candidate as the two engaged in heated exchanges throughout the night.
Two minutes deep into the five-candidate showdown, Weiner was already acknowledging and apologizing for his sexting scandal, but he urged voters to move beyond his "personal failings" and focus on the more substantive issues in the race.
(CNN) – A spokesman for Hillary Clinton hit back at Anthony Weiner's suggestion that he's familiar with the former secretary of state's plans for 2016 and how his wife will fit into those plans.
"We have absolutely no clue what he was talking about. Maybe his campaign does. Doubt it though," Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Clinton, said in a statement.
(CNN) – In a surprising switch-up, a new poll indicates Public Advocate Bill de Blasio jumped to the front of the Democratic primary race for New York City mayor.
According to the Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, de Blasio has the support of 30% of likely primary voters, with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn–the former frontrunner–falling behind with 24% and former Comptroller Bill Thompson taking in 22% just four weeks before the September 10 primary.

In a wide-ranging interview with BuzzFeed's Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith that was livestreamed exclusively on the "CNN BuzzFeed" channel on YouTube, Weiner also revealed that he's still in therapy but did not give further details on the frequency of his sessions.
