The Argonaut’s election analysis has declared Mark Farrell’s victory in District 2, although there are ballots to be counted, his dramatic surge in rank choice voting counts on Friday gives him, in the opinion of political experts, an insurmountable lead over Reilly even if her ever-energetic campaign manger, Clint, spends more money on lawyers for a recount. Reilly ran a modern, sophisticated campaign, deluging the district with sharp mailers, but Farrell ran a door-to-door born-and-raised here-went-to-Catholic-schools one-of-your-own and one of the more traditional family-orientated districts in the city. The Catholic vote was very important there and he carried it. If any race was an example that there is still a moderate vote along traditional value lines in the wacky San Francisco presented in the national media, Farrell’s victory contradicts that.
