Auckland mayoral race gets racey

Another twist in the race to become Auckland's mayor.

Candidate Wayne Brown has called on rival Leo Molloy to withdraw after an appearance on satirical television programme, New Zealand Today.

Molloy hit out at people he deemed "woke" as well as mayors Phil Goff and Len Brown during the interview with comedian Guy Williams.

Wayne Brown says the bizarre antics, short-temper, and foul-mouthed rants have eliminated any thought he was capable of being mayor.

Molloy laughed off Brown's call, describing his rival as "a dead man walking" and says it's Brown who should hold up a "white flag".

Simon Barnett & Tyler Adams (in for James Daniels) discussed the brouhaha on the show today.

They were joined by Wayne Brown and Leo Molloy.
