Grim Grinning Jim
But another interesting fact has surfaced. That is during the last period of January 1 to 22, the Mayor only outpaced longshot candidate Richard Alarcon and the also rans led by Walter Moore. Even Bitter Bernie whose campaign was declared DOA a week or two back by the Times has raised more dough than Jimmy Hahn (in fact Bernie was way out in front in the donation sweepstakes for the period).
As one of our posters said, that can not be a good sign for the Mayor. The talk that has gone back and forth for months that Hahn may not even make the runoff may not be as far fetched as once thought. With a decrease in fundraising, increasing ethics related challenges that are diverting campaign resources and a lack of support from the base that elected him, the Mayor seems to be in too deep of trouble too late in the game. He could pull it out, but signs are getting grimmer and grimmer for James Hahn.
