Mission: The 13th Court of Appeals overturned a lower court ruling that ordered a new mayoral election, which will let stand Armando O’Caña’s June 2018 runoff victory over incumbent Beto Salinas. In October 2018, District Judge Bonner Dorsey found clear and convincing evidence that at least 158 illegal votes were cast in the runoff, one more than the final margin of 157 votes.
