City Councilman Scott Sherman hosts mayoral campaign kick-off event

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two-term City Councilman and small businessman Scott Sherman officially launched his campaign for San Diego mayor Thursday.

Sherman becomes the only GOP candidate in the race to replace Mayor Kevin Faulconer in the 2020 election.

A lifelong San Diegan who spent his time prior to elected office building a small insurance business, Sherman’s entrance could greatly shake up the mayoral race by giving San Diego Republicans their first viable candidate with the March primary less than a 100 days away.

Sherman says he will bring a conservative voice to the mayor’s race and offer different kinds of solutions to the city’s homelessness and housing crisis than the leading Democratic candidates.
