As part of WHYY’s second “Leading Questions: A City Elections Special” which airs twice today (11 a.m. and 11 p.m.), NinetyNine sat down with WHYY’s Dave Davies for a “Best of the Race” recap. (Click this link for access to all the show’s segments.)

The segment offers listeners details about noteworthy recent events in the campaign to become the city’s Democratic nominee for mayor.

Included are discussions about:

Lynne Abraham collapsing on stage during a recent debate being aired on live television,

— an unfortunate Twitter exchange,

— the ongoing Jim Kenney/Tony Williams endorsement shuffle,

— Williams’ call for the instant firing of police officers who use disparaging terms about race or sexual orientation and,

— the impact of independent expenditure group spending thus far.
