While many races across Arizona were decided Tuesday night, early returns indicate that Phoenix’s mayoral election is just getting started.

No candidate secured 50 percent plus one vote — the number required to win the election outright. Former council colleagues Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela are expected to move on to a four-month head-to-head runoff.

Republican Moses Sanchez and Libertarian Nicholas Sarwark did not garner enough votes to continue to the runoff election, which will be held March 12.

Gallego had a substantial lead over Valenzuela, but there’s no guarantee that her success will carry into the next wave of the election.
