ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Control of City Council was up for grabs Tuesday with six council races.
The most heated was between incumbent Democrat Isaac Benton and Republican Roxanna Meyers, also an incumbent, who is a Berry appointee.
The two were fighting in the newly-merged District 2 which runs from UNM to the North Valley.
It looks like Benton will stay a city councilor. He's winning handily 61 percent to 39 percent.
"I stand by all the folks who stood by me and walked and knocked on doors and made phone calls and I think that's the way we win elections and I think the people have spoken and very strongly in our favor,” Benton said.
It appears three other incumbents up for re-election will all win and a Democrat in the newly-fashioned District 3.
There's one possible runoff in the works.
Republican Janice Arnold Jones was hovering at 52 percent at 9 p.m., but ended up dipping below 50 percent. She'll have to square off with Democrat Diane Gibson on Nov. 19.
