Bratina got many votes in the lower city too, though, because he championed keeping the stadium in the lower city. Moving the stadium out to the East Mountain was a non-starter for downtown Hamiltonians. Di Ianni was, and always will be, the suburbia candidate. Bratina had a broad base of support across the city - remember that he was recently the councilor for Ward 2.

Likely vote-splitting will be what decides this election - we've got it rigidly defined along urban/left and suburban/right lines thanks to McHattie and Clark, with Eisenberger taking a similar but more moderate platform to McHattie.

If it falls down to McHattie v. Clark, it's anybody's game. If Eisenberger stays in right to the end, Clark could win handily. If DiIanni or another popular suburban candidate runs, then Clark could have a hard day.
