Sen. Bernie Sanders' Stepdaughter Carina Driscoll Loses Mayor's Race in Vermont's Largest City

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. Carina for Mayor

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.

Trump allies Michael Cohen and American Media Inc., the owners of the National Enquirer, both admitted to paying off women who claimed to have had affairs with President Donald Trump to help with his 2016 presidential campaigns - something Trump continued to distance himself of in a pair of early morning tweets.
