SAN DIEGO MAYOR
Scandal-weary San Diego to elect mayor as candidates tread gingerly around disgraced Filner
Reported by: Associated Press

It took Democrats 20 years to recapture the mayor's seat in San Diego and less than nine months for one of their own to be driven out.
The former 10-term congressman isn't mentioned in debates, in campaign mailers or at pep rallies by candidates. Former Mayor Jerry Sanders calls it "Bob Filner fatigue."
If no one wins a majority in the Nov. 19 election — a likely scenario with 11 candidates — the top two finishers compete in a runoff.
