District 13 Update: Jennifer Staubach Gates Proud of Her Campaign

Jennifer Staubach Gates has delivered her victory speech, after getting a concession call from Leland Burk. Gates said her consultants at Allyn Media told her from the beginning that they were going to run a campaign that she would be proud of, and she said they were prophetic in that regard.
Despite the small army of people that she thanked before he arrived, Mayor Mike Rawlings told Gates, “You did this on your own.” I assume that was a reference to the perception that Gates was running on her father’s famous name — but you know what they say about assumptions.
As I type this, 37 of 45 precincts have reported; Gates has 64 percent, and Burk has 35 percent.
