Slay wins Democratic primary, historic 4th term likely

Mayor Francis Slay accepts the Democratic Party nomination for an historic fourth term. Mayor Francis Slay accepts the Democratic Party nomination for an historic fourth term.
It looks like St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay is heading for an historic fourth term. With all 222 precincts reporting, Slay had won 54-percent of the vote to Aldermanic President Lewis Reed's 44 percent. After the election board informed the candidates, Reed called Slay to concede. Then Mayor Slay took the stage at his watch party at the Dubliner Pub on Washington Avenue to share the news with his supporters.

Slay will face Green Party candidate James McNeeley in the general election April 2nd. But the primary win is a defacto re-election for the mayor, since St. Louis voters haven't elected a non-Democrat since 1945. Fewer than 50-thousand people cast ballots in Tuesday's Democratic primary.
