Berry's Next Step
After giving his victory speech, Berry said he wanted to "roll up his sleeves" and get to work. He's meeting Mayor Chavez tomorrow for lunch, and one of his first items of business is to sit down with councilors.
"Hey, We Did It"
Berry's giving his victory speech. He thanked the mayor for his years of service, and Romero for his attitude during the campaign. He's stressing working across borders in the Council.
"Thank you for this great honor."
That's it. Meet your new mayor.
Berry Takes the Stage
He's going to take the stage. This has to be it. The crowd's going crazy.
Berry: "Haven't Pulled It Off Yet"
Berry still isn't saying anything conclusive. He says he wants to win all precincts first. So even though Chavez left his party, and Berry is staying strong in the numbers, nothing is official.
Berry Gives a Small Speech
I was expecting a victory speech, but Berry just thanked everyone for their support thus far, said it looked good so far. We've got nothing official yet, but we do have 123 out of 186 precincts reporting, with Berry at 42 percent to Chavez' 35.
