Shocking that a candidate with as much baggage as Debbie Giordano could win (and win handily). I'm guessing it's because of the many contenders splitting the vote and the name recognition that Giordano has built up over the years for things other than stealing mailboxes.

Yes, rather surprising. Maybe people went with the Mercury's recommendations. I didn't.
