Build it, and they will vote. Your new Dallas Mayor: former Turner Construction CEO Tom Leppert.
In what has to be one of the weirdest situations I've seen, more votes were cast in a runoff election than in the previous month's election. 85,600 ballots were cast for the Dallas Mayoral June runoff, which was over 14,000 more than in the 11 candidate race in May. Maybe someone took a page out of the Chicago playbook and visited some cemeteries for swing votes?
Tom Leppert 57.85% 49,517 votes
