Runoff in Clinton mayoral race
BATON ROUGE - First-term Mayor Lori Ann Bell faces a runoff election in December.

Bell garnered 33% of the votes - about 292 cast in support of her. Reason received 319 votes, or 36%.
Reason lost the last mayoral election to Bell.
The third place finisher Melvin Spears, Jr. had a 278 votes.
