Chris Daly In No Hurry to Handpick His Successor
|Eenie Meanie Miney Mo...|
Well, whichever candidate Daly deigns to hand a rose to is going to have to wait. For a while. The supervisor told SF Weekly that he is in no hurry to annoint a successor.
"I want the candidates to have the opportunity to prove their mettle in the district," he said. He didn't predict naming any names until well into 2010 (though he has let it slip he's no fan of Theresa Sparks).
When asked about the benefits and detriments of his endorsement, Daly noted that it may well be "the kiss of death" out of District 6 -- "but my name is good in my district."
"I may only poll 51 percent, but 51 percent wins the election. And it definitely wins in a four-candidate race."
