According to campaign finance reports due yesterday, several candidates for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors have already surpassed the $100,000 mark for their races this November, the Chronicle reports.
Seven of the 11 seats on the board are up. The battle is on between the so-called moderates -- who would be considered liberals almost anywhere else -- who support Mayor Gavin Newsom's agenda, and the left wingers who have tried to block him at nearly every turn.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
