The contrast couldn’t be starker.
A procession of nationally recognized elected Democrats has rolled through San Diego to endorse the candidacy of David Alvarez for Mayor of San Diego.
More than three dozen elected officials from around the state have endorsed his candidacy. The candidate’s got some star power behind him, connections that could prove valuable in the future.
Exactly zero Republicans outside the Chamber of Commerce/downtown developer set have stepped up to the plate for his opponent Kevin Faulconer. Only four elected officials from anywhere are listed on his endorsements page. After promising the endorsement of “dozens” of Democrats from around the city for a press conference yesterday, only four were willing to be named on the press release.
