new mayor of L.A.

Wendy Greuel officially conceded the Los Angeles mayor’s race to Eric Garcetti on Wednesday after final results showed Garcetti with a 54% to 46% advantage in a low-turnout election.

“I may not have been able to break the glass ceiling, but we sure made a crack in it,” Greuel, the city controller, told supporters gathered at her Van Nuys field office.

Greuel, who was heavily backed by labor unions in the expensive campaign, would have become L.A.’s first female mayor if elected.
