Key questions in mayoral race: Who gets Latino New Yorkers votes?

Later in the week, the internal unrest from the Morales campaign spread publicly, and it is not yet clear how a late-stage campaign shake-up nearly three weeks before the primary will affect this status.

However, Mrs González-Rojas said on Wednesday that she stood by her remarks. She also said that she had nominated Mrs Morales for Mrs Ocasio-Cortez’s team.

Mrs. Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Puerto Rican descent, is among the most powerful potential approvers still on the sidelines of the mayoral race. Mrs Velázquez, who has recorded radio commercials on behalf of Mrs Wiley, has spoken to Mrs Ocasio-Cortez directly about the competition and encouraged her to meet with Mrs Wiley, she said.

Other candidates are also increasing their Latino commitment. Wiley issued an agenda targeting Latino communities last week. In his new ad, Mr. Donovan in Spanish, and he visited a major Latino church in Queens over the weekend. Raymond J. McGuire, a former Citi director, has Spanish-language radio ads and support from, among others, Assemblyman Robert J. Rodriguez of East Harlem.

Mr. Stringer, for his part, has long seen opportunities to cement his position with Latino voters during the final weeks of the race. Among other things, he lost Mr. Espaillat’s backing after an accusation that he made unwanted sexual advances during a 2001 campaign, which he has denied.

But even lawmakers who withdrew their approvals say Mr. Stringer remains known in some of their neighborhoods.

He is planning a meeting aimed at Latino voters in Washington Heights, where he grew up, on June 12. His stepfather, Carlos Cuevas, is Puerto Rican and tells one Spanish-language advertisement for Mr. Stringer, and Mr. Stringer’s extended Puerto Rican family is expected to join him in the demonstration, his campaign said.

Many Latino voters have just begun to notice the race, said Queens Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz, who drew her support from Mr. Stringer and has not supported anyone else. “They don’t really start talking about the election until like a month out,” she said. “You’ll see them start paying much more attention in the few weeks leading up to the election itself, unless there is someone who completely electrifies them.”
