Republican Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke breezed to a third term, while Democrats took seven of the nine city council seats in Tuesday’s city election. 

Winnecke won more than 80 percent of the vote, easily defeating Independent Steven Ary and Libertarian Bart Gadau.

Democrats did not nominate a candidate for mayor, but they won five of the six city council ward seats and two of the three at-large seats.
