Mayor Bill de Blasio received 66 percent of the vote Tuesday.
Bill de Blasio was re-elected mayor of New York City on Tuesday.
He received more than 66 percent of the vote, easily beating his closest challenger, Republican state lawmaker Nicole Malliotakis.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders both endorsed de Blasio. He's the first Democrat to serve more than one term as New York City mayor since the 1980s.
Just because de Blasio is remaining at city hall doesn't necessarily mean he's going to have a smooth four years.
Some of his plans for his second go-round include making free early childhood education available to all 3-year-olds in the city and increasing taxes for the wealthiest residents in order to fix the city's failing subway system.
But de Blasio will need help from the state for both of those items, and The New York Times reports the mayor doesn't have many "willing partners in the Capitol."
