The race to find a Tampa mayor isn’t over yet!
The Tampa mayoral race is heading for a runoff, after both candidates failed to reach 50% of the votes. According to the city of Tampa, one candidate must reach at least 50% of the vote in order to be declared the winner. Since neither candidate could do that, Tampa is now having a runoff.
Castor and Straz will face off in a runoff election on April 23.
Here’s what both of the candidates had to say via social media:
Thank you to all that came out, voted and supported David Straz in this election cycle. We look forward to the road to April 23rd! #JustImagine #TampaMayor2019 #StrazMayor2019 #Tampa #ElectionDay pic.twitter.com/mCBMRJiffD— David Straz for Mayor (@StrazForMayor) March 6, 2019
I am so grateful for the hard work and ceaseless energy that all of our supporters and volunteers have given to our campaign along the way. These next six weeks will be an exciting sprint, and we aren't taking anything for granted. pic.twitter.com/aufv9r4D4D— Jane Castor for Mayor (@JaneforTampa) March 6, 2019
