Polls have just closed in Cleveland, where Mayor Frank Jackson is expected to cruise to a second term. He had outpaced his opponent, former city council member Bill Patmon, by a 71-11 margin in the September primary.
Patmon said Jackson was to blame for a "decade of decline," citing Cleveland's population losses and poor schools. As Jackson pointed out, however, Patmon was in office for much of the same period.
Update: Jackson took 79 percent of the early and absentee ballots.
