It looks like Stockton will have a new Mayor judging by early returns.

Michael Tubbs spoke to supporters after early returns gave him a huge lead in the Stockton Mayor's race against incumbent Anthony Silva.

"It's an invitation to believe again, I know talking to folks throughout the city, people have lost hope, in themselves, in government, in city hall," he says. " This is an invitation to believe again. Stockton, number 1, thank you, number 2, great job, and number 3, let's get to work."

Tubbs, a member of the city council, has held a 40 point lead for most of the night.

Silva was likely hurt by his arrest for allegedly secretly taping counselors at a summer camp he runs playing a game of strip poker. He's accused of making the recording without their knowledge...he's also accused of providing them alcohol...Silva has pleaded not guilty to the charges
