(wnpr) - Hartford's Mayor Eddie Perez will stay on for another 4 years, after handily winning re-election yesterday. Perez defeated his closest challenger I-Charles Matthews 49-to-35 percent. Four other candidates in the race received just a few hundred votes apiece. Mayor Perez was backed by the Democratic party establishment, and he won even though he's the subject of a criminal investigation. We have two reports, starting with WNPR's Av Harris.
