New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio was projected the winner of his reelection battle Tuesday night — easily outpacing his main challenger, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis.

The Democrtic mayor had about 60 percent of the vote compared to the Staten Island Republican's 25 percent, and projected to win, according to NY1 News.

After casting his ballot, de Blasio expressed hope that reelection — the first for a Democrat since Mayor Ed Koch in 1985 — would "restore the idea that this is a consistent, Democratic, progressive town," the New York Post reported.

Never behind in the polls and facing underfunded challengers, the Post reported de Blasio overcame a corruption scandal that loomed over City Hall for months until prosecutors in March ended a probe of his fundraising practices — and simmering problems with near-record levels of homelessness and a troubled subway system.
