Rawlings re-elected; Van de Putte, Taylor head to runoff for San Antonio mayor

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Former state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte is headed to a runoff for San Antonio mayor against interim Mayor Ivy Taylor.

With all precincts reporting, Van de Putte had 30 percent of the vote Saturday compared to 28 percent for Taylor, but both advance to another round of balloting. Left out of the runoff is former state Rep. Mike Villarreal, who finished third in the 14-candidate field with 26 percent. Former Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Adkisson was a distant fourth with 10 percent.

Also Saturday, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings easily won re-election. With almost all precincts reporting, he had 73 percent compared to 27 percent from lawyer Marcos Ronquillo.
