It’s still more than six months away, but the race for mayor takes a big step forward tonight.

NY1 has the first debate among Democratic challengers for the job of the city’s chief executive.

The debate at John Jay College is moderated by NY1 anchor Errol Lewis. NY1 reporters Juan Manuel Benitez and Dean Meminger are panelists. Sister station NY1 Noticias will broadcast a Spanish interpretation of the debate.

The one-hour debate, which begins at 7 p.m., will include six candidates looking to be the next mayor. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and New York City Comptroller John Liu will be joined by Bill De Blasio, Bill Thompson, Sal Albanese, and Erick Salgado.
