Mayor Mitch Landrieu celebrates his re-election as Mayor of New Orleans
Mayor Mitch Landrieu easily won his bid for another 4 years as the mayor of New Orleans, earning a considerable majority with nearly 63 percent of the vote, dramatically beating Michael Bagneris (34 percent) and Danatus King (3 percent). While pundits speculated that the primary race could extend to a runoff, those predictions turned out to be just that: speculation.

In other races from Saturday's primary:

None of the candidates earned a clear majority (50+1) in the other two closely watched races, with Marlin Gusman and Charles Foti seeking the Sheriff's post, and Dwight McKenna will meet Jeffrey Rouse in their bids to be New Orleans' next coroner.

All runoffs will be held on Saturday March 15, 2014. Stay tuned to and for ongoing election coverage.
