State Sen. Marc Morial, the son of the city's first black mayor, won a mayoral runoff election Saturday after a campaign dominated by racist and anti-Semitic flyers. Donald Mintz, a white attorney, conceded defeat about two hours after the polls closed. With 421 of 474 precincts reporting, Morial had 83,363 votes, or 54%, to Mintz's 69,957, or 46%. Morial is the son of Ernest (Dutch) Morial, who served two terms as mayor from 1978 to 1986. Mintz lost a mayoral runoff four years ago.

Morial served two terms as mayor of New Orleans and is now chief executive of the National Urban League, a leading civil rights organization.

A nasty mayoral campaign dominated by scurrilous campaign flyers culminated Saturday with voters choosing between the son of the city's first black mayor and a lawyer who lost a 1990 runoff. Polls showed state Sen. Marc Morial, the son of former mayor Ernest (Dutch) Morial, and Donald Mintz in a dead heat or Morial with a slight lead. But the polls indicated that at least a fifth of the voters were undecided going into the last week of campaigning.

Two men pleaded guilty to charges that resulted from a federal investigation of New Orleans government corruption during Mayor Marc Morial's administration. Former city property management director Kerry DeCay and restaurant owner Stan "Pampy" Barre, a Morial confidant, each could get up to 20 years in prison for conspiracy, mail fraud and obstruction of justice.

Mayor Marc Morial is asking voters to change the city's term limits law so he can run for reelection. Morial, who was elected in 1994 and reelected in 1998, said he would try to help the city's schools if allowed to run next year. The city charter limits the mayor to two consecutive terms, but a group of Morial's supporters is circulating a petition to put the term limit issue on the ballot before the mayoral election.

Mayor Marc Morial's bid to run for a third term failed by a substantial margin, making him the third New Orleans mayor to lose a term-limit battle. With all 442 precincts reporting, opponents of Morial's bid to change the City Charter had 64,373 votes, or 61%, to 41,651 votes, or 39%, in favor. Opponents applauded voters for upholding term limits in the face of an expensive campaign by a popular mayor. Morial's proposal did not seek to do away with the city's two-term limit entirely.
