Democrat Chris Coleman Wins St. Paul...

Running on adrenaline and caffeine, mayor-elect Chris Coleman arrived at City Hall around 8 a.m. to greet city employees, a day after defeating Mayor Randy Kelly by a 69 to 31 percent margin.

City Council Member Lee Helgen was one of many who stopped to offer a handshake and a hug. Helgen was one of the first of the council members to publicly support Coleman, along with Pat Harris and Council President Kathy Lantry.
