Why Richard Berry won the mayor’s seat

At the Mayor Martin Chavez headquarters, doors are locked. Certain people are being allowed inside to watch results. It looks pretty grim from what I can see. The mayor appears stressed. Reporters are pacing the O'Neill's parking lot or hovering near their cars. We've been told Chavez is going to show up at O'Neill's at 9 p.m.

I've covered elections for 20 years, and I've never seen a candidate who holes up behind locked doors to watch election results.

You can show up to make sure that it isn't. I'll be collecting questions from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Bank of America Theatre at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. I'll pick a couple of the best ones and pose them to the candidates during the broadcast.
