What's Next for San Diego?

If Mayor Bob Filner (D) does step down, as expected, "an all-party primary would be held within 90 days of his resignation, with a runoff between the top-two vote-getters to follow within another 45 days," NBC News reports.

"The biggest question with implications for local and national politics is what Republican Carl DeMaio will do: continue his campaign for Congress against freshman Democratic Rep. Scott Peters, or jump into an abbreviated special election for the mayor's job that he came close to winning last November?"

"The possibility of DeMaio jumping to a mayoral special election is something that's worried GOP strategists ever since it became clear that Mayor Filner's job might suddenly become available. Both parties see the district -- which voted just 52% for President Obama in 2012 -- as up for grabs."
