The 2011 Tampa Mayoral Election took place in March 2011, in the city of Tampa, Florida. Incumbent Mayor Pam Iorio was prevented from seeking a third term due to term limits, creating an open seat. Candidates Rose Ferlita and Bob Buckhorn placed first and second, respectively, in the mayoral election held on March 1, 2011. Because neither candidate received a majority of the vote, a runoff took place on March 22, 2011, which Buckhorn won.[1]
