We've got a bummer crop of mayoral candidates this year. According to a June 25 poll by SurveyUSA, more than a quarter of likely voters haven't decided who they're backing.

Voters will go to the polls for a top-two primary on August 18, and the leading two candidates proceed to the general election. One of them will probably be Nickels, but he's so unpopular that whoever makes it through to challenge him has a good shot at winning. But most of them don't have a snowball's chance in hell. recommended
