Republican businessman Dick Crawford grabbed 48% of the vote to win the mayor’s race in Tulsa, Okla., leaving most of his 19 rivals far behind. Crawford received 46,621 votes to 34,356 for Democrat Patty Eaton, who had defeated Democratic Mayor Terry Young in the primary. Young, seeking his second two-year term as mayor, blamed his primary loss on news stories surrounding a letter he wrote seeking a lenient sentence for a former state senator convicted of mail fraud and income tax evasion.
