Gloria will be the first openly gay mayor of the city.
While there are still votes to be counted, State Assemblymember Todd Gloria appears to be heading toward a victory in the San Diego Mayor's race.
As of the County of San Diego Registrar of Voters' latest release of 2:20 am on Nov. 4, Gloria has a 13 percentage point lead taking 56.29% of the vote, over opponent City Councilmember Barbara Bry at 43.71%. The Registrar of Voters says there are still 370,000 ballots waiting to be processed, although those ballots are from voters county-wide so not all of them will include a vote for City of San Diego races.
With the number of votes still waiting to be counted, Bry told KPBS she is not ready to concede.
Gloria, who is 42-years old and openly gay, first served on the San Diego City Council representing Distrct 3 from 2008-2016 before being elected to the California State Assembly. He currently serves as the assemblymember for the 78th district. He is a San Diego native.
