The resignation of Bob Filner, San Diego’s first Democratic mayor in 20 years, thrust the city into upheaval and into a second mayoral election in a year.
This special election, squeezed into little less than two months, features 10 candidates. It’s a nonpartisan race, but party politics figure significantly in endorsements and in money raised.
Four candidates are considered major contenders: San Diego Councilman David Alvarez, a Democrat who has the party backing, Councilman Kevin Faulconer, a Republican with that party support, former assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, a Democrat, and former city attorney Mike Aguirre, also a Democrat.
