And speaking of the November election, it seems Chris Daly is hosting a bit of a soiree for political progressives on June 2nd, possibly to anoint himself or Matt Gonzalez to run against Gavin Newsom. So far there’s no credible competition to unseat the mayor, but the word on the street is that progressives are clamoring for someone to take on the task. No fans of Newsom, the folks at BeyondChron have predicted that either Gonzalez (who has supposed already decided not to run) or Daly (head for the hills!) will rise to the occasion. The prediction is here.
