Wendy Greuel called Eric Garcetti at about 1:45 a.m. to concede the race for L.A. mayor.

Greuel is expected to publicly concede at a press conference this morning. The Garcetti campaign confirmed her concession about an hour after the call.
The Greuel campaign made the decision to concede shortly after an update from the City Clerk's office showed her trailing by 8 points — 54 to 46 — with 72% of the vote counted.

Garcetti issued the following tweet shortly after Greuel's concession was reported.

And here's how it looked inside Greuel headquarters as she called Garcetti to congratulate him on his victory.
