SAN DIEGO Republican City Councilman Kevin Faulconer defeated Democratic Councilman David Alvarez in the San Diego mayors race Tuesday night.
Faulconer had 55.2 percent compared to Alvarezs 44.8 percent with 86 percent of the city's precincts counted.
A jubilant Faulconer gave a speech to his supporters about 10:40 p.m. but stopped short of declaring victory.
We know that this city has gone through a lot in the last year, but we knew that as San Diegans that we were better than that and that we were going to come together when we had the opportunity to do that and come to together we have, Faulconer said.

Feinstein, Boxer and Obama all endorsed Alvarez. lol!
Sounds like a prize. How long until scandal comes his way?
Probably the best of all outcomes. Filner beats the RINO homosexual and gets run out and replaced by a more sane Republican.
Because a Republican won, that’s already a scandal to the ultraleft media.
You nailed it. I’ve not been a big fan of Faulconer. But given the choices, he stands head and shoulders above the rest.
San Diego is a wonderful place. If any of you haven’t been there, if you ever get a chance, don’t pass it up.
Yeah, let us know when homosexual "pride" day/week/month is so we can side-step that land mine.
I see a bridge scandle in his future, no matter if his opponenet was responsible for the murders of 4 in bengahzi
Watch for the upsurge in “occupy”, and “resistance”, and La Raza. Thanks South40.
An omen of things to come? Could this be the reason why (cackle)?
As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature healthcare plan---ultimately enacted, by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote, into the "Affordable Care Act"
QUOTING 2008 OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over again---- with his promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
Significantly, Obamba NEVER corrected lock-stepping Democrats, all reading from the same Democrat talking points, all of them repeating the same Democrat promises---over and over again.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE Obama And the Dems marched in lockstep.....the persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
SEN. BARBARA BOXER (D-CALIF): So we Democrats want people to be able to keep the health care they have. And the answer to that is choice of plans. And in the state exchange, were going to have lots of different plans, and people will be able to keep the health care coverage they need and they want. (Sen. Boxer, Press Release, 2/8/11)
SEN DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D-CALI): I listened to the president and I believed him when he said, 'if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.' I believed he was correct. I didn't realize there were all these codicils attached to it. President Obama should never have promised that people would be able to keep their health plans. I think he was done a disservice. Someone should have stopped him and said on his staff. There's this condition and that condition."
Then-Majority leader Pelosi (D-CALIF): "We must pass the O-care bill so we can find out whats in it." Tick, tock, tick tock,......we must now wait 1-2 decades for its "goodness" to rollout.
Finally we win an election. For awhile there we were losing practically every one. So glad that the good team won for a change.
So what happened to that potent latino vote? Calif is teeming w/ illegals just dying to vote when amnesty-loving Democrats give the signal.
WIKI The Guatemalan population at the 2010 Census was 1,044,209. Guatemalans are the fifth largest Hispanic group in the United States and the second largest Central American population, after Salvadorans.Half of the Guatemalan population is situated in two parts of the country, the Northeast and Southern California. A combined population of 267,335 resides in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties.
DEMOCRAT AMNESTY WORSHIPPERS HAND-OVER AN ETERNAL $100 MILLION tax dollars per year to La Raza and other hate groups. La Raza Studies do not even try to sugar-coat its anti-America agenda and its bloodthirsty plans to kill off Americans: Raza Studies textbook Occupied America, by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a violent and blood-curdling speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him, (pg. 323). The following is taken directly from La Raza's Occupied America: .......execute all white males over age 16, (p 167--AKA the Plan of San Diego).
America-hating Raza Studies teach (1) violence, (2) undermining US ntl security, and, (3) the need for Mexico to "re-take seven states in the Southwest to make the SW a Chicano nation. "
Good News! And Obama endorsed.
One wonders why there wasn’t the usual Progressive whining about disenfranchisement, irregularities, recounts, and heartless conservatives.
I have not been following this race. Did Faulconer suck up to the Hispanic vote like the GOP Establishment insists is the only way to win in the newer browner America?
Good News and A Great Cup of Coffee Go Great Together; First Thing of A Morning!
