OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett has won re-election, becoming the first four-term mayor in the city’s history.

The Oklahoman newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1f5AWMd ) that Cornett won nearly 66 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s election.

City Councilman Ed Shadid collected almost 33 percent of the vote. Two other opponents earned a combined 1.5 percent in the non-partisan election. The results avoid a runoff because Cornett received more than 50 percent of the vote.

Between them, Cornett and Shadid raised more than $1 million to pursue a job that pays $24,000 a year. Cornett had a 2-1 edge in fundraising over Shadid, who also is a spinal surgeon.

Cornett told supporters at his election night party that the city “has a long, long way to go and we ain’t done yet.”
