San Diego County’s Democratic coalition could not have hoped for a better Election Day.
After 18 months of campaigning, the mayor’s race was too close to call late last night. But as of 2:24 a.m., with thousands of provisional votes still to be counted, U.S. Rep. Bob Filner held a lead over Carl DeMaio at 9,816 votes. The trend headed in his direction all night long as mail-in ballot results were diluted by those who voted on Election Day.
Port Commissioner Scott Peters has a razor-thin lead on incumbent U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray.
