OCTOBER 19, 2005 -- Wilmington voters won't be heading back to the polls. City council candidate Pat Delair says she won't call for a run-off.

Delair, the fourth place finisher, made her announcement at Wilmington City hall Wednesday afternoon. She says she's throwing her support behind third place finisher, Earl Sheridan, a UNC Wilmington political science professor.

Three seats were at stake in the election, and Delair had earned enough votes to challenge Sheridan to a run-off.

Both candidates have been conferring about the decision. Delair says she and Sheridan share the same views on issues.

Delair hasn't decided whether she'll run for city council again.
