The first candidate television ad in the mayor's race is out.

Republican candidate John Catsimatidis released a one-minute-long biographical spot.

Catsimatidis, the owner of the Red Apple and Gristedes supermarket chains, has committed several million dollars of his personal fortune to his campaign.

He is facing former Metropolitan Transportation Authority chairman Joseph Lhota and George McDonald, the founder of the nonprofit Doe Fund, in the Republican primary in September.

NY1 is one of several stations running the ad. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
