The campaign of Dr. Jonas R. McClintock (affectionately known as "The Boy Mayor" during his first term as Mayor of Pittsburgh, 1836-1839) has conceded that Dr. McClintock has not been elected to a second term as Mayor of Pittsburgh.
"Although it was tempting to believe that a candidate with Dr. McClintock's record and credentials would be successful against the other candidates presented," a campaign spokesman said, "it was difficult to overcome a situation in which many of Dr. McClintock's strongest supporters have been dead for more than 150 years, and the others have been dead for more than a century."
"In a perfect world, a candidate of Dr. McClintock's caliber would have been the overwhelming preference among City of Pittsburgh voters today," the spokesman continued. "But if this were a perfect world, Dr. McClintock would not be inside a cold, dark, damp box."
Dr. McClintock will not be available for comment.
