Voters in municipal elections gave easy victories to women mayoral candidates in two of the state's largest cities.

Incumbent Dallas Mayor Annette Strauss scored a whopping 72 percent landslide victory Saturday. In San Antonio, former three-term Mayor Lila Cockrell got almost 60 percent of the total to succeed Henry Cisneros as head of the city government.The victories meant the three largest cities in Texas will be run by women, at least until November when Houston Mayor Kathy Whitmire faces an election. She is expected to run for a fifth term.
