Antonio Reynoso is the Likely Next Brooklyn Borough President; Here's What He Ran On

In a competitive 14-candidate Democratic primary, City Council Member Antonio Reynoso is all but certain to win and go on to become Brooklyn’s next Borough President.

With tens of thousands of absentee ballots still to be counted and the official ranked-choice “instant runoff” then to be tabulated, Reynoso had a lead of 73,566 votes (28.2%) over second-place Robert Cornegy, Jr., also a City Council Member, after the initial tally of in-person, first-rank votes.

He then showed additional strength in the preliminary ranked-choice runoff published Friday by the Board of Elections, where Reynoso was ahead of second-place Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon in the end, 97,554 votes (55.3%) to 78,958 votes (44.7%), again with absentee ballots yet to be factored in.
