Former medical
center chief wins
with 55 percent
of ballots cast
DETROIT (AP) - A former
medical center chief defeated
a county sheriff to become the
next mayor of financially trou-
bled Detroit, though the job
holds little power while the city
is being run by a state-appoint-
ed emergency manager.
Unofficial returns showed
Mike Duggan defeating Wayne
County Sheriff Benny Napo-
leon 55 percent to 45 percent.
Napoleon conceded defeat late
Tuesday in a race where he was
outspent by Duggan by about
3-to-1 heading into Tuesday's
Both candidates had said
during the campaign that the
state-appointed emergency
manager should leave the city

and allow the new mayor to
fix Detroit's finances when he
takes office in January.
"I'm going to try to shorten
Kevyn Orr's stay," Duggan told
The Associated Press heading
into the election.
But the reality is that Dug-
gan will have little power
under emergency manager
Kevyn Orr, who in Julyfiled to
take Detroit into bankruptcy.
Duggan, an ex-county pros-
ecutor and former chief of the
Detroit Medical Center, said he
wants to convince Orr's boss,
Gov. Rick Snyder, to allow him
to develop a team and a plan
to resuscitate the city's fiscal
condition if elected mayor.
Both Duggan and Napoleon
campaigned on fixing Detroit's
deteriorating neighborhoods
and reducing the high crime
rate in a city that struggles to
respond to 911 calls on time.
Detroit has more than 30,000
vacant houses and build-
ings. Bing's administration

has demolished about 10,000
empty and dangerous houses
during his four-year term.
But anything the new mayor
wants done that requires money
must first get Orr's approval.
Snyder did not endorse a
candidate, but after testimony
last week in bankruptcy court,
he held firm in his decision
to appoint Orr and keep him
in place until Detroit emerg-
es from bankruptcy and its
finances are fixed.
"Detroit's fiscal crisis was six
decades in the making," Snyder
said in a statement. "My job is
to make the tough decisions to
resolve the problems we face
today, not ignore them."
Detroit's mayor cannot
remove Orr. Under state law,
that only can be done by the
governor or an act of the state
legislature. However, once
Orr's 18-month contract ends a
supermajority vote by the city
council and mayor can choose
not to renew it.

Current Mayor Dave Bing
did not seek re-election. He
has always been opposed to
Detroit having an emergency
manager and has been frus-
trated by the relationship he
has with Orr, saying that Orr
hasn't communicated well
with the mayor's office.
Duggan becomes Detroit's
first white mayor since the
early 1970s. The city is more
than 80 percent black.Experts
say the data will improve
understanding about how
planets form, what conditions
might make life possible and
where else in the universe it
might exist.
The orbiter is expected to
have at least six months to
investigate the planet's land-
scape and atmosphere. At its
closest point, it will be 365
kilometers (227 miles) from
the planet's surface, and its
furthest point will be 80,000
kilometers (49,700 miles)


McAuliffe defeats Cuccinelli in Va.

election lacks
voter enthusiasm,
- Terry McAuliffe wrested the
governor's office from Repub-
licans on Tuesday, capping an
acrimonious campaign that
was driven by a crush of nega-
tive advertising, non-stop accu-
sations of dodgy dealings and a
tea party-backed nominee who
tested the limits of swing-vot-
ing Virginia.
McAuliffe received* 47 per-
cent to Cuccinelli's 46 percent,
with 97 precincts reporting.
McAuliffe, a Democrat,
ran strong among unmarried
women, voters who made abor-
tion a top issue and those who
called the suburbs of Wash-
ington, D.C., home, accord-

ing to preliminary results of
an exit poll conducted for The
Associated Press and the tele-
vision networks. Cuccinelli,
meanwhile, fared well among
tea party backers, gun own-
ers and among the state's rural
residents - but there were not
enough of them to yield a vic-
In winning, McAuliffe broke
a stubborn streak in state his-
tory. During the past nine gov-
ernor's races, the party that
controlled the White House at
the time has always lost.
That's not to say voters
rushed to back McAuliffe's
vision for Virginia. Turnout for
was low, and both candidates
worked through Election Day
to reach as many potential vot-
ers as possible.
Only 52 percent of voters
said they strongly backed their
candidate, the rest had reser-
vations or backed a candidate
because they disliked the other

options, according to exit polls.
Neither major candidate's ideo-
logical views seemed "right"
for a majority of Virginians, So
percent called Cuccinelli too
conservative, 41 percent said
McAuliffe is too liberal.
The exit poll included inter-
views with 2,376 voters from 40
polling places around the state.
The margin of error was plus or
minus 3 percentage points.
Voters' dissatisfaction
couldn't overshadow the
fight on television. McAuliffe
enjoyed a 10-to-1 advertising
advantage over Cuccinelli dur-
ing the final days.
"We were very heavily out-
spent but I'm proud we ran on
first principles," Cuccinelli told
supporters in conceding. "The
battle goes on."
The campaign's tilt turned
many voters off.
"I really hated the nega-
tive campaigning," said Ellen
Tolton, a 52-year-old grant

writer. "I didn't want to votefor
any of them."
Richard Powell, a 60-year-
old retired IT manager who
lives in Norfolk, described him-
self as an independent who fre-
quently votes for members of
both parties. He said he casthis
ballot for McAuliffe, although
not because he's particularly
enthusiastic about him. He said
he was more determined not
to vote for Cuccinelli, who he
said overreaches on a variety of
medical issues.
Voters were barraged with a
series of commercials that tied
Cuccinelli to restricting abor-
tions, and while Powell said
the negative advertising "got to
be sickening," abortion rights
played a factor in his vote.
"I'm not in favor of abortion
- let's put it that way - but I
find that restricting abortion
causes far more social harm
than allowing abortion, so that
was an issue for me," he said.
