Bing elected Detroit’s mayor

Detroiters elected former Piston Dave Bing their mayor yesterday.

Jemele Hill had a good piece on Bing last week. He was definitely the NBA-supported candidate.

Bing has more money than his opponent and more connections in the business world. Bing has raised almost $1 million, and Cockrel has taken in about $600,000. According to campaign finance records, NBA commissioner David Stern, former Pistons stars Isiah Thomas and Chauncey Billups, and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert have given money to Bing’s campaign.
