Photos: Election night in Tucson

Supporters gathered Tuesday evening to hear election results come through for Tucson City Council candidates.

Incumbent Richard Fimbres easily won a second term. Fimbres, who represents the city's south side, had too big a lead over challenger Mike Polak after the initial ballot drop at 8 p.m.

Democrat Karin Uhlich cruised into re-election Tuesday night as well. Uhlich had more than 58 percent of the vote and was beating Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia by more than 10,000 votes.
