Indicted Rochester mayor defeated in Democratic primary

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, who ran for a third term while under indictment in a campaign finance case and under fire for her handling of a police killing, has been defeated in the Democratic primary by City Councilman Malik Evans.

Evans’ win Tuesday all but guarantees he’ll become mayor of New York’s third largest city. There is no Republican challenger on the November ballot.

The former Rochester School Board president entered the race in January, taking on the vulnerable Warren with a theme of restoring trust and government transparency.
