It was all smiles at de Blasio's campaign celebration last night. He won 75% of the vote in yesterday's primary, with his closest challenger Sal Albanese trailing behind at 15%. The mayor touted his accomplishments, including universal pre-K, community policing, and decreased crime rates. And, he tried to set a new tone for what he hopes will be his second term. 
 
"I want to make clear that no matter how much I love this place and how much good I've seen, I do not accept the status quo in this town. We've got more to do, my friends," he said.
 
de Blasio is now focusing his efforts on the general election, where he'll face Republican Nicole Malliotakis and independent Bo Dietl. I'm Kacie Candela, WFUV News.
