Leavitt leading in early Vancouver mayor returns

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - Incumbent Tim Leavitt is leading in early returns in the Vancouver, Wash., mayor's race.

Leavitt was leading Bill Turlay by 54 percent to 46 percent Tuesday night.

The Columbian reports ( that much of the campaign has focused on the proposed Columbia River Crossing.

When Leavitt defeated then-Mayor Royce Pollard in 2009, he campaigned against tolls. After he took office, he said tolls would be a necessary part of a new bridge financing plan.

Turlay has campaigned on a platform of opposing the bridge and light rail project unless major changes are made to the plan and its finances.
