Goodman Wins Third Term As Las Vegas Mayor

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman has overwhelmingly won a third and final term in office, matching her husband Oscar Goodman's 12-year span running the city.

Carolyn Goodman captured eight of every 10 votes Tuesday, allowing her to bypass a June general election. She needed to win more than 50 percent of the vote over six challengers.

While Goodman voted early Tuesday and attended a morning campaign event, the 80-year-old mayor didn't attend her election night watch party at her husband's glitzy downtown steakhouse.

Goodman announced in January that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her husband announced at the party Tuesday night that she had been feeling too tired after a recent round of chemotherapy to attend the event.

He said she planned to rest and return to work Wednesday.
