This photo combo shows candidates for New York City's next mayor. Top row, from left are Christine Quinn; William Thompson Jr.; Bill de Blasio; Scott Stringer. Bottom row, from left, John Liu; Raymond Kelly; Alec Baldwin; and Adolfo Carrion Jr. New York City's 2013 mayoral race doesn't fully kick off until after voters are done picking a president.
