June 6th, 2012 (San Diego)--Last night as election results came in, Mayoral contender Nathan Fletcher was still telling his supporters that they were going to hold on for a few more hours for results. He said that “one year ago nobody gave us a chance.” He also told his supporters that “given the results and projections things were headed in the right direction.”
By this morning, however, with 100% of precincts counted and only some absentee and provisional ballots remaining, his showing proved not enough to overcome partisans on both sides.
