Cornett wins in OKC

Mick Cornett, a former sportscaster, won the election today for Oklahoma City mayor despite being outspent 3 to 1 by businessman Jim Tolbert. Tonight at 9 pm Tolbert conceeded. I must admit I did not pay much attention to this race but I wonder if Cornett's famous name in OKC was a factor in his win. Not only has he been in media in the city but his father, Jack Cornett, was a city councilman for a million years.
