Chelsea Handler is throwing her influential voice into the race for San Francisco’s next mayor.
San Francisco Supervisor, and mayoral candidate London Breed received a ringing endorsement from the superstar comedian and talk-show host, as seen in a clip posted on Breed’s social media pages.
Breed is currently the frontrunner in the race for mayor of San Francisco. She previously served as Acting Mayor of San Francisco after the sudden passing of Mayor Ed Lee.
As President of the SF Board of Supervisors, Breed assumed the role of Acting Mayor per the city charter.
When she made it clear that would seek to officially run for the position during the special election for mayor in June, Breed - who was the first African-American woman to ever serve as mayor of San Francisco - was unceremoniously removed as Acting Mayor from a majority-white Board of Supervisors and replaced by a white male with ties to the wealthy tech community. This was despite the fact that many San Franciscans viewed her as doing a good job in the role.
But her removal from the mayor’s office backfired on her opponents, and instead gave her momentum going into the June election.
Breed now is way out ahead of the crowded field of candidates in the polls, and with endorsements from the likes of popular progressive voices such as Chelsea Handler, it seems like she may be occupying the San Francisco mayor’s office again very soon.
