Andrew Yang announced Tuesday night that he's dropping out of the New York City mayoral race.

Why it matters: The 46-year-old Democrat gained a following during his 2020 presidential campaign and was an early front-runner in the Democratic mayoral primary, which is for the first time taking place under a ranked choice voting system.

What he's saying: "I am not going to be the next mayor of New York City based upon the numbers that have come in tonight," Yang said in video filmed by New York Daily News reporter Shant Shahrigian.

  • "I am conceding this race, though we’re not sure ultimately who the next mayor is going to be. But whoever that person is, I will be very happy to work with them."

The big picture: Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was the early front-runner after polls closed on Tuesday, but the winner won't be announced for some time.

  • The Board of Elections will conduct a votes tally on June 29, but it won't analyze absentee ballots until July 6, per AP.

Of note: Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa beat businessman Fernando Mateo to win the Republican primary Tuesday night.

  • The winner of the Democratic primary is expected to be elected mayor in November's general election.

Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) on Monday launched her bid for mayor of Los Angeles.

Why it matters: Bass is a high-profile member of Congress. The former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, she was considered as a potential running mate to President Joe Biden and was a lead negotiator in the recently ended talks on police reform. Should Bass win the mayoral election, she would become the first female mayor in L.A. history.

A federal appeals panel ruled Monday that New York City's vaccine mandate for adults working in public schools can proceed, reversing a temporary injunction that was issued Friday.

Why it matters: The ruling could clear an avenue for a broader mandate for all city employees, the New York Times notes.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper has quietly been forced to overhaul his staff in the last year following a series of departures, including three of his top advisers. Cooper spokesperson Andrea Fanta admitted staff departures have "created some stumbles" in appointing seats on city boards and commissions.

  • Seven top officials have left Cooper's staff, including legal director Bob Cooper, finance director Kevin Crumbo and communications director Katie Lentile.
