NEW YORK - The two candidates vying to be the next mayor of New York City squared off Tuesday night in their first televised debate.

Republican Joe Lhota and Democrat Bill de Blasio discussed a slew of issues facing the city, disagreeing on nearly every topic. As for the NYPD's controversial stop-and-frisk policy, both men say they have zero tolerance for racial profiling.

Lhota and de Blasio are set to take part in two more debates.

There will be at least one other name on the ballot, Adolfo Carrion Jr., who is an Independent candidate and former Bronx borough president.

The general election is set for Tuesday, Nov. 5.
