Voters in Winnipeg, Canada, reelected openly gay mayor Glen Murray to a second term Wednesday, the Canadian Press reports. Murray won 50.6% of the vote, compared with 37.5% for his nearest opponent, former city council member Al Golden. "The foundation for a very strong few years is in place," said Murray, who ran on a track record of property tax cuts and debt reduction. "We solved a lot of basic problems that the city has dealt with for 30 years. We've really turned downtown around. We're through the worst of the city's finances."
