I don't remember seeing tane before this sentence. In what cases do you have to use counters?

It is a complex thing, counters in Turkish. It is starting to die out now (I mean just starting...it is still widely used of course), with tane being used for "piece" instead by some people. Tane can be used almost everywhere where you can count things. :)

Why is "There are just two candidates for mayor," wrong?

Just a forgotten alternative :)

It is "Belediye başkanlığı için sadece iki aday var".
