LOS ANGELES (AP) – With all precincts reporting in Los Angeles, two City Hall veterans earned the right to advance to a runoff election to replace outgoing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

City Councilman Eric Garcetti and city Controller Wendy Greuel set up a contest of two Democrats who occupy a lot of similar positions in an election to determine who will lead the nation’s second most populous city that’s troubled by double-digit unemployment and a looming budget gap.

Tuesday’s election capped a lackluster primary campaign that was snubbed by most of the city’s 1.8 million voters. Turnout was scant.

KFWB’s Penny Griego and Phil Hulett spoke with the candidates this morning.
