From an outsider's perspective, it might seem Mayor Ed Lee has made up his mind: He's not running for mayor. But as you get closer to the guts of San Francisco politics, it's hard to ignore his slight comments to the press such as “I'm not campaigning at this time.” It's even harder to shrug off the Run, Ed, Run campaign, which is becoming seemingly bigger than the election itself.
Not only is it distracting voters, who are already confused by San Francisco's election system. This shadowy campaign is also getting all the media attention, leaving the real mayoral candidates feeling a little insecure.
And who else are they launching their complaints, to but Lieutenant Governor and former Mayor Gavin Newsom.
