Incumbent Holds Off Ex-Mayor In Quincy

Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch has defeated former Mayor William Phelan in a bitter rematch of their race from two years ago.

Unofficial returns from the city of 92,000 residents just south of Boston showed Koch with 54 percent of the vote, to 46 for Phelan.

The campaign mirrored the 2007 race in which Koch ousted Phelan, then a three-term incumbent.
