New Orleans Mayor: Voters have spoken again


NEW ORLEANS (AP) - After four years of police reforms, revamps of city contracts and stepped-up efforts to clean up lingering Hurricane Katrina blight, Mitch Landrieu calls his landslide victory for a second term as New Orleans' mayor a clear message from voters to keep moving forward.

Landrieu captured 64 percent of the vote in Saturday's city election, defeating retired Judge Michael Bagneris and local NAACP leader Dannatus King.

"Now the people of New Orleans have spoken - again," said Landrieu, who won a similarly resounding victory over 10 opponents in 2010.

In the New Orleans sheriff's race, incumbent Marlin Gusman finished strong despite last year's release of an inmate-made video showing drug abuse and a loaded weapon in the jail he runs. Gusman faces former Sheriff Charles Foti in a March runoff.
