The Democratic-leaning voters of St. Petersburg, Florida stuck with Republican leadership, picking Bill Foster in an open-seat race. From the St. Petersburg Times:
ST. PETERSBURG -- Bill Foster crested to victory Tuesday, defeating Kathleen Ford with the backing of the city's political establishment in a mayoral election that tested voters' hunger for change.
Ultimately, voters rallied behind Foster, 46, a lawyer and former council member who promised steady progress in contrast to Ford's reformist platform.
Early mail ballots gave Foster a meager lead, but his margin of victory only widened throughout the night as precinct results from Election Day trickled in.
