San Diego City Councilman Scott Sherman retained a small lead over fellow Councilwoman Barbara Bry in Sunday vote totals. The two politicians are battling for the second spot in the San Diego mayoral runoff.
State Assemblyman Todd Gloria won the first spot with almost 42% of the vote. As of Sunday at 5 p.m., Sherman had a 1,264-vote lead with approximately 150,000 ballots left to be counted countywide. The next results will be posted Monday at 5 p.m.
The top two vote-getters in the March primary, regardless of party, will be on the November ballot. As of the beginning of January, 42.6 percent of the city's registered voters are Democrats in the city, 21.2 percent are Republicans and 30.1 percent are registered with no party preference.
There are a few other close races countywide as well.
In San Diego City Council District 1, Will Moore has a 660-vote lead over Aaron Brennan in the race for who will make the runoff.
In San Diego City Council District 3, Toni Duran has an 809-vote lead over Chris Olsen in the race for who will make the runoff.
In the San Diego County Supervisor District 1 race, Nora Vargas has a 681-vote lead over Rafa Castellanos.
And the "Yes" side of Measure C to raise hotel taxes to fund a Convention Center expansion, homeless services and road repairs was up by 64.69%. The measure likely would need 2/3 of voters' approval to pass.
