Flint Mayor Dayne Walling easily finished first in Tuesday’s mayoral primary. But the race for the second spot on the November general election ballot was extremely close.
Dayne Walling says Tuesday’s primary vote shows Flint residents understand the challenges he’s struggled against during the past two years. The city’s murder rate has soared. Flint’s budget is strained. Still, Walling picked up nearly 50% of the votes cast in yesterday’s 7 way primary.
