District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is the kind of person San Diegans like to elect mayor. Law-and-order. Moderate. Republican. Experienced.
Her mayoral campaign also featured the most robust plan to address troubles at city schools. But Dumanis never gained traction during the race and finished in fourth place.
In a candid Q&A, Dumanis said that she never got asked to drop out of the race and that Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher went back on a pledge to her not to run for mayor.
