5 things to watch for in New York mayor's race

New York (CNN) - It's primary day in New York City, where a whole lot of Democrats and not that many Republicans will select their nominees for mayor and a slate of other city offices.

Given the city's liberal bent, the primary serves as a de facto general election. Most of Tuesday's Democratic winners will sail to victory in November against token Republican opposition.

But New York hasn't elected a Democratic mayor since 1989, when David Dinkins became the city's first African-American mayor. This is shaping up to be the year that streak ends.

    I hope Mr. Weiner can save some face when this primary election is all said and done. He seemed to boldly predict a win, but I think he's going to come up woefully short. Whatever his concession speech is going to be, I hope that he's spent a lot of time and thought working on it...and most of all that he keeps it short and answers as few questions as possible.

    Good luck to all of the candidates, both Republican and Democrat.
