It looks like Stockton will have a new mayor.

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 one, thank you, number two, great job, and number three, 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.
