Las Vegas Mayoral Race Results

AIR DATE: June 8, 2011

Carolyn Goodman handily beat County Commissioner, Chris Giunchigliani in the mayoral election. One pundit called the race before any precincts reported when early voting numbers gave Goodman an insurmountable lead. Carolyn Goodman now has a month before she takes over for her husband Oscar Goodman in city hall. Goodman was the front runner from the time she entered the race and despite a few gaffes and numerous attack ads from her opponent she came out on top. So what are the new mayor's plans and what will the city look like with four more years of Goodman? Las Vegas Sun reporter, Delen Goldberg has followed the race from the start and she joins us to discuss the results of the race.

    COMMENTS:
    Any effect on the Erik Scott case since its now gone to federal court and Carolyn's son is representing the Scott family? Carolyn is now head of the LV City Council, which partically funds LVMPD. Could there be a settlement in the federal case in the enar future that pays Ross Goodman taxpayer money after being approved by his mother?
