Cleveland mayor claims progress, businessman highlights crime, jobs as 2 face off in election

Cleveland's mayoral election on Tuesday pits two Democrats against each other: incumbent Frank Jackson and businessman Ken Lanci.
Lanci, a 63-year-old printing-house mogul, has highlighted crime and job concerns and a troubled police department.
No independent polls have emerged. Jackson, first elected to the city council in 1989, should benefit from strong name recognition and ties to the Democratic rank-and-file.
Still, he has faced a vigorous, sometimes quirky challenge from Lanci, who has pumped more than $400,000 into his campaign.
