SF mayor’s race: London Breed hangs onto lead over Mark Leno

By Dominic Fracassa, San Francisco Chronicle

While she is still in the lead, Supervisor London Breed didn’t make much progress in her quest to become San Francisco’s next mayor. The latest batch of election results released Monday show her leading Mark Leno by 1,601 votes, or 50.38 to 49.62 percent. That’s an increase of just 21 votes over Sunday’s total.

The race has been exceedingly close since election night, and the scramble to interpret the once-daily updates from the Department of Elections has become a tense waiting game for each candidate’s supporters.

“It’s a stressful waiting period,” said Leona Bridges, a Breed supporter who has come to City Hall each day to see the results for herself. “And we’ll be here every day until the final results come in,” she said.
