Jacob Frey declared Minneapolis' new mayor, defeating incumbent


November 9, 2017

Challenger Jacob Frey won the Minneapolis mayor’s race Wednesday, defeating incumbent Betsy Hodges in a crowded race to lead Minnesota’s largest and most liberal city that was rocked by two fatal police shootings.

Frey, 36, a one-term City Council member, emerged from more than a dozen candidates to challenge Hodges, and got more than 50 percent of the vote to be declared the winner. He takes office in January.
