SF Mayor's Race Too Close to Call
SAN FRANCISCO - OCTOBER 10: Waves crash against rocks at Fort Point near the Golden Gate Bridge October 10, 2008 in San Francisco, California. The Golden Gate Bridge District board of directors voted today to continue with a plan to build a suicide prevention net on the world famous bridge with a price tag of $40 to $50 million dollars. An estimated 1,300 people are believed to have jumped to their death from the bridge since it was opened in 1937. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
A new poll finds voters are split on who they want as the next mayor of San Francisco. A San Francisco Chronicle survey found that none of the current candidates are getting even 20% of the vote and that's taking into account the new ranked-choice voting system.
The poll shows state Sen. Leland Yee, City Attorney Dennis Herrera and Mayor Ed Lee are the early favorites. Lee has already said he's not going to run in November.
Other possible candidates that have voters' interest include Michela Alioto-Pier who will officially announce her candidacy today. As well as former Supervisor Bevan Dufty and Board President David Chiu. All three are a close second to the lead three.
