NY1’s Grace Rauh Just Wants de Blasio to Have Fun

One week after Mayor Bill de Blasio coasted to victory in the Democratic primary election, we’re left questioning whether an election defined by low turnout gives him a “mandate” to continue enacting his agenda. NY1 political reporter Grace Rauh has followed de Blasio since his election in 2013, often literally doorstepping him at various events. She joined the Slant podcast to explain the enthusiasm gap around de Blasio, why he avoids her questions outside of his Park Slope gym, and her ongoing investigation into his emails. Grace also offers a preview at what a second de Blasio term might look like and the future of his relationship with Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
