• Peduto beats 2 opponents for Pittsburgh mayor

    The 49-year-old Peduto won Tuesday's election in Pennsylvania's second-largest city, where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2-1.

    Peduto, who's finishing his 12th year on Pittsburgh City Council, won a three-way Democratic race in the May primary.
