Ohio city's mayoral race offers contrast in styles

CINCINNATI (AP) - Voters in Ohio's third-largest city can weigh in this month on the race to choose a new mayor.

A Sept. 10 nonpartisan primary in Cincinnati will cut the field from four candidates to two. The November winner will succeed term-limited Mark Mallory, who is completing his second 4-year term.

The heavy favorites to move on are Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls and former councilman John Cranley. Both are Harvard-educated Democrats with long records in Cincinnati politics.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/1dRODkL ) that the two offer a contrast in styles, with Qualls considered to be more of a low-key leader while Cranley can be more combative.

Qualls supports plans for a downtown streetcar and to lease city parking. Cranley opposes both plans.

Libertarian Jim Berns and independent Queen Noble are also running.
