BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Incumbent Mayor Byron Brown handed Democratic challenger Bernie Tolbert a resounding defeat in Tuesday's primary vote.
With 94 percent of precincts reporting, Brown had 68 percent of the vote and was declared the winner of the race. He will go on to face Republican Sergio Rodriguez in the general election.
Tolbert ran against Brown on a platform based on Tolbert's past experience with the FBI, which he argued could be used to help battle crime in the Queen City. Tolbert even won the support of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association.
But in the end, voters stuck with Brown, who has touted improvements in the city under his leadership, including waterfront and economic development, and lower crime rates.
