Elected Mayor

Antonio Villaraigosa

The 2009 election for Mayor of Los Angeles took place on March 3, 2009. Incumbent mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa was re-elected overwhelming and faced no serious opponent. Since Los Angeles holds nonpartisan elections, there was no Democratic or Republican primary. Villaraigosa would have faced a run-off against second place-finisher Walter Moore had he failed to win a majority of the vote.

Villaraigosa won the election despite having generally unfavorable approval ratings. He was credited with winning because more well-known and better-funded candidates, such as developer Rick Caruso, declined to run.
