A 10News/U-T San Diego poll shows that if the special election were held today, Alvarez would receive 17 percent of the vote. Former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher would get 30 percent of the vote; Councilman Kevin Faulconer, 22 percent and Mike Aguirre would get 9 percent of the vote. Three of the four front-runners are Democrats. The only Republican contender is Faulconer.
A group of about 20 Alvarez supporters chanted, "Alvarez for all of us" and "Democrats for David" outside the meeting. Many of them took their signs inside once the meeting got started.
A candidate must have 60 percent of the central committee vote to get an endorsement.
