Rob Ford Wins in Toronto as Brother Loses Mayors Race

Doug Ford, brother of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, lost his bid to follow in his brother's footsteps in the city's top job Monday night — but the scandal-ridden mayor was elected to the City Council. Rob Ford bowed out of the race after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer, and he tapped Doug Ford, who was his campaign manager, to run in his place. Despite having admitted smoking crack and boozing on the job, Rob Ford easily won election to the City Council in his home district.
