LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wendy Greuel is thanking supporters who tried to make her Los Angeles' first woman mayor.

Greuel — the city controller— finished behind Councilman Eric Garcetti in a runoff Tuesday for the city's top job.

She says she wasn't able to break the glass ceiling at City Hall — a reference to a gender breakthrough — but told supporters "you sure helped me put a crack in it."

She urged supporters Wednesday to embrace Garcetti and called him a tireless and innovative leader.

Garcetti takes over for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on July 1.
