NEW YORK (AP) -- Public Advocate Bill de Blasio has been elected mayor of New York, becoming the first Democrat since 1989 to be chosen to lead the nation's largest city.

De Blasio defeated Republican Joe Lhota. De Blasio will succeed Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire who is leaving after 12 years.

De Blasio ran on a liberal, tax-the-rich platform that was sharply at odds with Bloomberg's pro-business, pro-development record.
