Kansas City voters got the Funk out. Mayor Mark Funkhouser won't see a second term in office -- the first incumbent since the 1920s to not survive the primary.

Sly James and Mike Burke will square off in a March 22 run-off election. KMBC Channel 9 reported that only 38 votes separated James and Burke.



In the City Council races, here's the March fight card:

The 1st District At-Large: Scott Wagner vs. Daina Kennedy

The 2nd District: Incumbent Russ Johnson vs. Aaron Benefield

The 2nd District At-Large: Incumbent Ed Ford vs. Allen Dillingham

The 3rd District: Incumbent Sharon Sanders Brooks vs. Jermaine Taylor

The 3rd District At-Large: Incumbent Melba Curls vs. Brandon Ellington

The 4th District At-Large: Ex-councilman Jim Glover vs. John Crawford

The 5th District: Ex-councilman Ken Bacchus vs. pastor Michael Brooks

The 5th District At-Large: Incumbent Cindy Circo vs. Charlie Angel

The 6th District: Incumbent John Sharp vs. Terrence Nash

The 6th District At-Large: Scott Taylor vs. Tracy Ward

Running unopposed were Dick Davis (1st District) and Jan Marcason (4th District).
