Portland Mayor Beats Radical Leftist To Win Re-Election Despite Months of Riots


Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler won re-election on Tuesday night despite facing criticism over his handling of left-wing riots and protests in the city.

Wheeler, a Democrat, defeated hard-left candidate Sarah Iannarone, an open supporter of antifa, by a five-point margin, with 13 percent of voters writing in a candidate.

Wheeler won despite criticism over his handling of the almost nightly unrest in Portland over the last several months.
