Today is the San Diego mayoral race -- or at least the first round. The latest poll has Mayor Jerry Sanders ever so close to avoiding a runoff. He leads challenger Steve Francis 45%-32%, with 11% undecided and the rest going to other candidates.
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.
