New York (TADIAS) — San Jose, California Mayoral Candidate Sam Liccardo, who was endorsed by the Ethiopian American Council (EAC), has made the runoff as one of the top two winners at Tuesday’s primary race behind county supervisor Dave Cortese whom he will face in the Fall election to replace the termed-out Mayor Chuck Reed.

San Jose Mercury News reports Cortese and Liccardo “are on their way to a November runoff in the race for San Jose mayor, a battle that will largely be a referendum on the Chuck Reed administration. Cortese, a Santa Clara County supervisor, had clearly emerged triumphant in Tuesday’s primary with about one-third of the votes. Liccardo grabbed the other spot with a bit more than 25 percent of the vote, according to semi-final results, with all precincts reporting early Wednesday morning.”
