Eight is more than enough: New York has too many candidates and a muddle of a mayoral race

There have been a record eight candidates at the two official debates so far, which is way too many and means that they all talk in 45-second soundbites, with no time for following up. Even as the Democratic primary will functionally decide the next mayor here, the local Democratic Party is a hollowed-out shell with no power to cull the field. Meanwhile, a very generous campaign finance system that doubles as an employment act for political consultants along with a new ranked-choice voting system for primaries means none of those eight candidates have any reason to go away, so the race has stayed too crowded to make much sense as New Yorkers finally start tuning in with less than three weeks to go before the first June primary since 1973.
