How To Watch The Republican Mayoral Debate

Tonight — Wednesday, May 26th — the Republican mayoral candidates will partake in their first televised debate, which you’ll be able to watch on NY1, listen to on WNYC, or stream below.

Given there are only two Republican candidates, Fernando Mateo and Curtis Sliwa (learn more about the candidates here), the event will only be one hour, starting at 7 p.m.

As with the first Democratic debate, this one will be moderated by NY1’s Errol Louis, along with WNYC’s Brian Lehrer, and The CITY’s Josefa Velasquez.


This debate is sponsored by WNYC/Gothamist, NY1, The CITY. This is the first Republican debate sanctioned by the Campaign Finance Board, and is the result of a partnership that includes Citizens Union, John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Social Work Votes.
