Austin Mayoral Election: No More Runoff!

Courtesy the Statesman, here is Brewster McCracken's letter to supporters announcing his withdrawal from the mayoral race.

I suppose it's just as well. Given Lee Leffingwell's large number of supporters (who almost made the runoff unnecessary), it was almost a foregone conclusion as to what would happen next month.

So, then, all you Austinites who forgot last Saturday's election can continue not to care about much else, since there is not an election next month after all. Maybe that could be a good thing.
