Enviros split endorsement in D3
I received an interesting announcement today. The League of Conservation Voters San Diego chose to support Todd Gloria in the San Diego City Council District 3 race. Anyone who has been watching this race closely has to be a little surprised. The Sierra Club came out early to support Stephen Whitburn and John Hartley, basically saying anyone but Gloria. Then, there was a lot of talk about the number of enviros that were lining up for Whitburn, because of all the developer money that showed up on Gloria's campaign disclosures. So, how did he squeeze a sole endorsement from the League? Their board is full of real enviros, so this is really a coup for Gloria. Or, maybe a signal that people on the ground think he has it tied up?
