Florida mayor, 93, in run-off election for record 20th term


ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - Voters in a central Florida town will decide on Tuesday whether to re-elect their 93-year-old mayor for a record 20th term in office.

Mayor John Land of Apopka, population 41,000, is facing opposition for the first time in a decade after finishing second in a four-way mayoral election in March. No candidate won more than 50 percent of that vote, resulting in run-off election being held on Tuesday.
