Next mayor of Phoenix: Wes Gullet or Greg Stanton?
Following yesterday's election, it appears the keys to Phoenix City Hall will soon belong to either Greg Stanton or Wes Gullett (insert South Park "turd sandwich" "giant douche" reference here).

Unofficial results show that Stanton scooped up about 38 percent of the vote, while Gullett came away with about 21 percent.

To become mayor, a candidate must receive 50-percent of the total vote. With neither candidate achieving that number, the two will square off in the first run-off election for Phoenix mayor in at least 60 years.

In yesterday's election, Stanton, a former Phoenix city councilman, may have had a fairly commanding lead over Gullett, a former lobbyist and pal-o-John McCain, but we want to know what you think: who will win the run-off election?

Cast your vote below.

I am gladto see people actually voting for common sense in the Mayors race, I sure hopeStanton wins. It was not so in the governors race. I can't understand whypeople would put someone in office without an education. There she is, Brewersomeone who cannot make sound decision or form coherent sentences; and she isin charge of the AZ budget

Wes will win--because most of the non=Stanton votes  are conservative--and libs don't turn out for runoff  elections /s/ former Councilman  GARY PETER KLAHR

Stanton is the worst of both worlds. He protects established labor interests and raises a regressive sales tax on food that disproportionately hurts the poor.

All I need to know is who Jan "Drunk Puppet" Brewer, Rus-SELL "Fiesta Bowl" Pearce, and Sheriff Joke ArPayaso endorse to know who NOT to vote for.  They make my decisions so easy.

With outsider Wes Gullet in the run off, voter turnout will determine this race. Greg Stanton, former District 6 Councilman pulled Republican votes on Tuesday, but will the far right and Tea Partiers come out hold their nose and cast a vote for Gullet? Stanton has the left and was the only Democrat Tuesday. Will he convince his base to come out November 8th? Stanton would have a better shot if Maddox or Neely were in the runoff, but Gullet will get a shot of money and so will Stanton. Getting Stanton elected is "the" State Democratic Party priority. DO NOT believe anyone who says this race will be non-partisan.

Why should Democrats vote for someone that raises taxes on the poor with a regressive sales tax on food?

Wes Gullet is also not as much of a long term threat to the Democrats as Stanton is to the Republicans. Unlike Stanton, Gullet is not going to be able to use the mayor's race as a stepping stone to Congress, Governor, etc. because he is way to the left of his party base.

There are planners and there are those who get things done. Gullett has said he is NOT a lobbyist, rather a planner.

I think Greg Stanton is the man of choice for the chair.

Wes Gullett can contract with the city to do planning and lobbying, thus keeping his business that he spent so many years building.

Win/win.
