Organized Labor: On the surface, the Los Angeles mayor's race looked like a choice between Coke and Pepsi. But Eric Garcetti's lopsided win over Wendy Greuel showed a major difference — in the public's view of unions.

City Controller Greuel lost 54%-46% on Tuesday, bested by City Councilman Garcetti, who will become the mayor of America's second-largest city on July 1.

It was an interesting result because the candidates are two peas in a pod. Both are left-wing Democrats with ideas so closely aligned they have been political allies; both grew up in the San Fernando Valley; and both hold considerable experience in Los Angeles city politics.

In addition, both raised comparable amounts of campaign cash that exceeded a record $33 million total.

Yet Garcetti won easily in what is most likely a sign of the public's dissatisfaction with Greuel's coziness with Los Angeles' all-powerful public employee unions.Scissors-32x32.png
