Alvin Brown makes history as city's first African-American mayor

Brown, 48, will be the first African-American to hold the seat in the city's history and the first Democrat since Ed Austin was elected in 1991.

Receiving 97,057 votes to Hogan's 95,521 in a 37 percent turnout, Brown won with an eight-tenths-of-a-percent margin of victory. That gap is large enough to prevent an automatic recount.
