NEW YORK - The seven Democratic candidates in the race for New York City mayor took the stage for their second televised debate.

The politicians came out swinging Wednesday night, challenging each other on several hot-button issues, including NYPD oversight, hospital closures and income inequality.

A final debate is scheduled for Sept. 3, just a week before the primaries on Sept. 10.

If no Democratic contender reaches 40 percent of the vote, the top two will advance to a runoff election three weeks later.
