The Mayor breezed to victory in Tuesday's primary and his night ended early.  He made his acceptance speech before 9:30 p.m.  In it, he described the relationship he expects to have with the new city council during his next term.

JOHNSON: "We know that council does not have to be dysfunctional. It can work very well together. It can be trusted. And it can be something that makes you very proud.  And, that's part one of my commitment of the next four years. "

The mayor promised to fulfill some of the campaign pledges he made in 2008, like increasing Sacramento's influence and image nationally.  

A new arena wasn't part of the last election, but the arena issue became a significant part of his first term.  He made no reference to the future of an arena, but did say the city should be proud of the efforts to keep the Kings.

He won handily over three challengers and a write-in candidate. 

Johnson raised more than $800,000 for the campaign.  He still has plenty left over that he could use to help support candidates in the city council races in the fall.
