In a survey of 400 likely November voters in the City of San Diego, 40 percent of respondents support or lean toward Filner in the Mayor’s race. Thirty-two percent of respondents said they support San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio and 29 percent were undecided.
District Attorney and Mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis today urged voters to get the entire story behind Nathan Fletcher's voting record and brief time as a Sacramento politician. Since the beginning of the year he has been missing in action 70% of the time at his job in Sacramento. A check of his record also shows he has voted along party lines most of the time and voted against women’s issues, environmental protection and transparency.
From the release: "Carl DeMaio has been San Diego's leading open government watchdog for years and has been calling for increased transparency for nearly a decade – beginning when he helped uncover the city’s financial problems and brought them to public light."
