Last week, incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter came in second with just 30% of the vote in his re-election bid to lead Boise. Now, he's headed to a runoff election with Boise City Council President Lauren McLean who took 46% of the vote. Bieter joins Idaho Matters to talk about what he learned from last week's upset, and the contrast he hopes to draw between himself and McLean leading up to the December 3 runoff.
Clarification: In the audio of this interview, Mayor Bieter said there are three debates or forums planned between now and December 3. Lauren McLean's campaign clarified that they have only agreed to one forum so far: the City Club of Boise event which is slated for November 12.
