Bibb leads, ex-mayor concedes, in Cleveland mayoral primary

CLEVELAND (AP) — Unofficial results show nonprofit executive Justin Bibb in the lead of Cleveland's mayoral primary race, which narrows a field of seven candidates to two. Bibb had the unofficial lead late Tuesday, with City Council President Kevin Kelley in second place. The top two vote-getters will face off for office in the Nov. 4 general election. Both men are Democrats. The former “Boy Mayor” of Cleveland, Dennis Kucinich, conceded the race Tuesday night. The 74-year-old Kucinich drew attention as the youngest big-city mayor in the U.S. after his election in 1977. Longtime Democratic Mayor Frank Jackson chose not to seek a record-setting fifth four-year term.
