Goodman, Undergoing Cancer Treatment, Postpones Swearing-In

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman's swearing-in for a third term Wednesday has been postponed until May because she isn't feeling well.


Goodman has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer since January. She overwhelmingly won re-election earlier this month but skipped her Election Night party because she was feeling too tired after a recent round of chemotherapy.
