Houston voters set to pick mayor, City Council in runoff
HOUSTON (AP) - Voters in Houston are heading to the polls for runoffs in municipal elections, including for mayor. Democrat and incumbent Sylvester Turner is favored over challenger Tony Buzbee after the two gathered the most votes in a 12-candidate general election in November. Turner has highlighted Buzbee’s ties to President Donald Trump, who remains deeply unpopular in mostly Democratic Houston. Hip hop fans may recognize a candidate in a runoff for a City Council seat. Brad Jordan, better known as “Scarface,” faces Carolyn Evans-Shabazz for a chance to represent a part of Houston with chronic poverty and crime.
