Detroit Mayor: Kilpatrick Wins

In a stunning, come-from-behind effort, Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick bested former deputy mayor Freman Hendrix 53 percent to 47 percent to claim a second term in the Motor City.

Kilpatrick, one of the nation's youngest mayors when first elected in 2001, seemed headed for defeat early in the night as Hendrix piled up a lead that at times totaled several thousand votes.  But when the votes were counted, Kilpatrick had a 14,000-vote lead out of more than 220,000 cast.

Several Detroit news organizations are reporting that the FBI will be probing absentee ballots in the election.

The Associated Press has a file from the middle of the night here, and here's the Detroit News's vote tally page.
