Rob Ford has won the 2010 Toronto Mayoral Election!!
Congrats Rob! We knew you would do it! We are all so happy for you, and for Toronto!!
With the Polls at 99% complete, here are the results:
Rob Ford 379,755
George Smitherman 286,777

Other notable winners tonight were Doug Ford (Rob Ford's brother) in Ward 2, Mary-Margaret McMahon over Sandra Bussin in Ward 32, and unfortunately Paula Fletcher was re-elected in Ward 30 over Liz West by an extremely small margin (we'll get you next time Paula, next time!!).

Here's the story from the National Post:
