Ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer has spent a whirlwind two months asking New York City voters to give him another chance after a prostitution scandal ended his political career. Now he's poised to find out whether Democrats will.

Polls show Spitzer and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer in a close race heading into Tuesday's Democratic primary for city comptroller.

Spitzer is seeking a comeback five years after resigning and acknowledging he patronized call girls. He was never charged with any crime.

He's asked voters to focus on his record as a hard-charging governor and state attorney general.

Stringer says he's mastered both fighting for causes and forging compromises during 20 years as borough president and a state assemblyman.

The winner will face a Republican and other opponents Nov. 5.
