LONDON (AP) — Sadiq Khan, the Labour Party’s mayor of London, appears to be romping to victory as results from the capital pour in. Results from nine of the 14 electoral districts show Khan, chasing a record third straight term, on 43.5% and more than 10 percentage points ahead of his main challenger, the Conservative Party’s Susan Hall. There had been speculation that the result would be closer than previously thought, but Khan’s lead is showing a swing from Conservative to Labour. If confirmed later Saturday, it will be another positive sign for Labour from Thursday’s array of local elections that if repeated in a looming national vote will see the party oust the Conservatives for the first time since 2010.
