Let's hope the lead holds and let's hope it's a harbinger of things that will happen in November. In loony California Republican City Councilman Kevin Faulconer has taken a commanding lead in the race to fill the vacant mayoral seat left by over sexed Bob Filner who resigned in August, two months before pleading guilty to criminal charges. Faulconer has garnered 56.6 percent of the vote. Democrat David Alvarez has 43.4. If elected Faulconer would be the only Republican mayor of a top 10 US city.
