Kevin Johnson Likely Headed for Run Off In Sacramento Mayoral Race

Former NBA star Kevin Johnson leads incumbent Heather Fargo 47 percent to 40 percent in the Sacramento, CA mayoral race as of Tuesday evening. There are still about 15,000 vote-by-mail ballots that have to be counted, but it appears unlikely that Johnson will have the required 50 percent mandate to avoid a run off. Johnson who supports presumed Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama seems poised to be the next mayor of Sacramento even with a likely November runoff.
