    Sen. Bernie Sanders' Stepdaughter Carina Driscoll Loses Mayor's Race in Vermont's Largest City
    Carina for Mayor
    U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders' stepdaughter, Carina Driscoll, ran to unseat Burlington's incumbent mayor, Miro Weinberger, a Democrat who was re-elected to his third term Tuesday.

    U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders' stepdaughter has lost her bid for mayor of Vermont's largest city, where Sanders got his political start.

    Democratic Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger won re-election to a third, three-year term on Tuesday. He beat Carina Driscoll and fellow independent candidate Infinite Culcleasure.

    Driscoll says the city under Weinberger has catered to private investment rather than advocate for residents' vision of the municipality.

    Weinberger says voters have had the ultimate say in most major initiatives. He also says his office has turned around Burlington's troubled financial past, worked to rebuild public trust and made improvements to the northern waterfront and other projects.

    President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he misspoke during his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Trump said he does "accept" the intelligence community's conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Trump also said he needed to clarify that he didn't see a reason why the meddling "wouldn't be Russia." Trump had said the opposite a day earlier, prompting bipartisan backlash.
