UPDATE: Mulligan concedes mayor’s race

------------------------------

Democratic Mayor Bill Courtright’s lead has widened his lead again with most of the city’s precincts reporting in the Scranton mayor’s race. Courtright leads Republican Jim Mulligan 7,216 votes to 6,811 votes. In a city still 3 to 1 Democratic, Mulligan has shown respectably, but if he needs to close the gap soon. Courtright supporters are now feeling pretty confident of victory for their mayor, who would win his second four-year term in the $75,000-a-year job. Soon after 10 p.m., Mulligan conceded the race.
