Do any of these look more lucky than the other?

A winner has been chosen by a coin toss in a Texas city council election.

 

Church administrator Bruce MacNair won Friday's flip that decided the race between him and Bryan Studer.

The two had agreed to the coin toss to decide the contest for a seat on the Wolfforth city council after each received 118 votes in last weekend's election.

The men saved the tiny city the $10,000 cost of a run-off election.

MacNair won by drawing heads. He says he's glad the election is over.

Wolfforth is a bedroom community near Lubbock with about 3,700 residents.
