Duggan is Next Detroit Mayor

Mike Duggan "overcame questions about his outsider status to become Detroit's first white mayor in about four decades," the Detroit News reports.

Detroit Free Press: "For the first time in 40 years, predominantly black Detroit elected a white person as mayor. Community leaders, political observers and voters provided a number of theories on how that happened. But among them was a theme: The election was about much more than skin color, even in a region where race has been a foremost issue for decades."
