Developer Rick Caruso and Representative Karen Bass are projected to face off in the race for Mayor of Los Angeles this November.

As of this writing, Caruso has received more than 41% of the vote, with bass earning more than 37%.

City Councilman Kevin de Leon is a distant third in voting, receiving more than 7% of votes and the Associated Press has projected that the gap is wide enough to predict Caruso and Bass as the final two candidates.

Had either candidate received more than 50% of the vote, there would not have been no need for a runoff.

The winner of the November 8 election will replace Mayor Eric Garcetti, who has served two terms and is no longer eligible to run due to city term limits.

Despite predictions, votes are still being tallied and final results are not yet made available.
