Over the course of the past several months, NinetyNine has posted a “Mayoral Race Quotes-of-the-Day Quiz” on varying days of the weeks.

Well here we stand, on the eve of the primary election, and what better way to test knowledge retention than revisiting some of the more notable quotes of the series?

The answers, as always, are tucked in at the bottom of the post, but we’re going without a hint net on this one, other than the fact that each mayoral candidate is included, and some more than once.

Good luck!
