The Associated Press wrote Democrat Coleman wins re-election as Columbus mayor

COLUMBUS — Democrat Michael Coleman overcame attacks that he was soft on crime and ineffective on economic development to easily defeat his Republican challenger Tuesday and win a third term as mayor of the nation’s 15th largest city.

In early returns, Coleman was ahead 71 percent to Bill Todd’s 29 percent.

Todd, 54, a longtime party insider little known to the public, frequently represents GOP interests in election disputes.

Coleman, 52, had only minor-party opposition in 2003, when he swept to a second term.
