Luther 'Uncle Luke' Campbell Loses Mayoral Race


Runoff in Miami; Luther Campbell Out

2 Live Crew front man Luther Campbell made a valiant attempt to run for mayor of Miami-Dade County. He wasn’t actually heavily favored but he did end up in fourth place in a special election after 88 percent of voters chose to recall now-former Mayor Carlos Alvarez in mid-March.

Campbell’s platform included taxing strippers and he took home 11 percent of the votes. Former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina and former Miami-Dade County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez will battle in a June 28th runoff election for the mayoral position.
