Karen Bass elected as Los Angeles First Woman Mayor

Residents of Los Angeles on Wednesday  have elected Karen Bass as first woman mayo to head America’s second biggest city.
Lifelong Democrat Bass, who is Black and a longtime US congresswoman,
beat an immensely well-funded challenge from former Republican property developer Rick Caruso, who spent an eye-watering $100 million of his own money on the race.
With almost three-quarters of the vote counted, Bass had a lead of around 46,500, according to a tally released Wednesday, which local media dubbed “insurmountable.”
Counting continues and election officials are set to certify the results on December 5.
