What's next for Tucson General Election candidatesPosted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -- After Tuesday night's primary election in Tucson, the ballot for November is clear.
Tucson will have a contested race for Mayor, and city council in Wards 1, 2 and 4.
For the first time since 1999, Tucson will elect a new mayor. Unless Green Party candidate Mary DeCamp pulls an upset, it'll either be Republican Rick Grinnell or Democrat Jonathan Rothschild.
For city council, Ward 1 incumbent Regina Romero might have survived her toughest fight in the Democratic Primary, outpacing her opponent by 2700 votes. In the General Election she'll face Beryl Baker from the Green Party, who Tuesday night made the ballot with 10 write-in votes.
In what should be a more competitive council race, incumbent Democrat Shirley Scott will face Republican Tyler Vogt in Ward 4.
In Ward 2, Democrat Paul Cunningham, who was appointed last year to replace Rodney Glassman will face off with Republican Jennifer Rawson.
In just over two months, we'll see the new face of Tucson government.
Election day is November 8.
