Export mayor

Democrat challenger Bob Campagna, 74, defeated incumbent Michael Calder, 30, for his party's nomination for Export mayor.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Campagna received 53 percent of the votes. Just five votes made the difference.

With no Republicans seeking the nomination, Campagna is virtually assured of re-election, barring any successful write-in campaign.

Calder could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.

Campagna, who has previously served two terms as mayor, thanked his supporters.

“When you're in office, you have to listen to the people,” he said. “They want better security and service.”
