Deja vu all over again

Posted by G.A. Matiasz on June 4, 2007

After a June 2 “Progressive Convention” in San Francisco failed to chose a candidate to run against Mayor Gavin Newsom from the left, speculation has been rife about who might step up. Ross Mirkarimi has declined, leading to speculation that Chris Daly may announce today. No dice with Daly, which puts Matt Gonzalez in the spotlight once again. Even if Matt runs, this won’t exactly be a repeat of the last mayoral election as Newsom has a better than 65% approval rating, a teflon coating with respect to recent scandals, and a ton of money already donated to his campaign. To keep up on the speculation and news, check out Beyond Chron.

    I’m disapointed too. I can’t believe the Capital of the Left Coast liberals can’t produce a single candidate to oppose Newsome. With only Tony Hall in the race and an eminent victory, Gavin will become more conservative using these four years to campaign for a bigger office. Chris Daly is a joke!!!
