Homophobic Mayor Ivy Taylor conceded to challenger Ron Nirenberg in San Antonio's mayor's race Saturday night, losing in the runoff election by a 55% to 45% margin with 100% of the precincts reporting.
"We're just very proud... of the response from the community..." Nirenberg told News 4 San Antonio at his campaign headquarters on North Broadway when it became clear he would be the next mayor.
Shorty after that, Taylor addressed the crowd at her election night gathering at Sunset Station saying "I am so grateful to God..."
The only other council incumbent to lose in the runoff was Alan Warrick in District 2, who lost to challenger William "Cruz" Shaw 56% to 44%.
