Vote By Mail ballots gave City Attorney elect Mike Feuer a staggering 18 point lead. It was a lead that was to widen as precincts started reporting, and it fueled the upbeat mood at the Feuer campaign's victory party.

a call from the defeated incumbent.
At 11:30PM Trutanich called Mike Feuer and 'sort of' conceded defeat. "If it carries on this way, then I will work with you to transition to the office," the failed incumbent said.
The mood at the Trutanich victory party had been anything but upbeat.
As we go to press, the latest bulletin from the City Clerk shows Mike Feuer with 61.38% of the vote, 22.77 points ahead of the failed incumbent, who continues to tank.
It is an historic margin of defeat for an incumbent.
