Luther Campbell Mayoral picLuther “Uncle Luke” Campbell placed fourth in Miami’s mayoral election with just over 11 percent of the vote.

The former front man of rap’s group 2 Live Crew, Campbell pushed a platform supporting the poorest communities of Miami. While critics of his campaign made light of his proposed “Stripper Tax, Campbell rallied support against police brutality, and prison privatization, and for uplifting poor communities and supporting public hospitals.

No candidate received the required 50 percent of  votes to win, so  Hialeah mayor Julio Robaina and former Dade C0ounty Commissioner Carlos Gimenez will vie for the job  in a runoff to be held on June 28.

Campbell recently spoke of his campaign:

“With less than $10,000 in campaign contributions, a small band of hard-working, unpaid volunteers, and the power of the alternative press, we put a real scare into the political machines that control our local elections. We showed them that a candidate who is not beholden to special interests can be taken seriously.”
