David Ortiz's popularity in Boston might be at an all-time high after he led the Red Sox to the World Series championship last month. That is no more evident than in a report that Ortiz finished third in the Boston mayoral election Tuesday, receiving more write-in votes than anyone else. A total of 560 write-in votes were cast, according to election officials, but the number that Ortiz received was not released. Martin Walsh won the race to succeed Thomas Menino with 72,514 votes, beating John Connolly (67,606).
