The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
San Francisco Mayor London Breed endorsed Mike Bloomberg for the Democratic presidential nomination, boosting the billionaire’s chances in a delegate-rich state where he got off to a late start but is now spending millions to try to win.
Breed, who will chair African Americans for Mike, said in a statement that she was backing Bloomberg in part because he was “the only candidate for president who has a fully articulated plan to improve the lives of African Americans.”
This came after Bloomberg also picked up endorsements from Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas, Coronado Mayor Pro Tempore Whitney Benzian, Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina and Moreno Valley Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez.
Mayor @LondonBreed has been an important leader in the fight to create a more equitable & just San Francisco – by helping the city’s homeless population, increasing affordable housing and championing the fight against climate change.
