The story of the race is that the person with all the labor, institutional and civic support, with millions of dollars in fundraising and millions more in SuperPACs and who was running for eight years, beat the person who had almost none of that by a single point

Adams didnt have "all the civic support." Unless you don't count NYT, NYDN, and leadership of NYC Partnership as "civic support."

Adams had the most endorsements for labor unions and local politicians, plus the Post and a bunch of other minor newspapers. Garcia had some support from those groups/institutions, but nowhere to the same scale Adams did.

....because white voters massively coalesced around Garcia at the close

Also not sure into what categories you place NYT and NYDN endorsements; seems pretty consequential

While Adams was my #1 and Garcia #2, facts, he had a more than a 100k more votes on Election Day. The total of the absentees and the fakakta roulette wheel aka RCV make it look closer. In the end, he won, fair and square.

I would certainly not suggest it was anything other than fair and square! My point is about the power of the city's political establishment

But this doesn't count the votes that are allocated if/when Wiley is eliminated?!
