Houston: Headed to Runoff
The Houston mayor's race was always expected to go to a runoff, but there looks to be a surprising cast of characters in the ...
With 75 percent of the vote in, Annise Parker has the lead with 31 percent. Former City Attorney Gene Locke has 25 percent.
It was expected that the two of them would battle it out for second place behind City Councilman Peter Brown, who had spent $3 million worth of family money on the race, had been leading in polls and clearly enjoyed an edge in advertising exposure. But he's looking shut out of the runoff at the moment, with 23 percent.
