Mark Leno to make remarks in San Francisco mayor's race

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco mayoral candidate former state Sen. Mark Leno is scheduled to make remarks about the election as the latest results show London Breed pulling ahead in a tight race.

Leno's campaign declined to elaborate on the Wednesday 1 p.m. event.

Breed is leading Leno a week after the June 5 election by fewer than 1,900 votes with about 245,000 ballots tallied. There are at least 9,000 ballots left to count.

Analysts say it would be extremely difficult for Leno to win based on voting trends and the number of ballots left to count.

Breed has 50.42 percent of the vote, including nearly 37 percent of first-place votes.

San Francisco uses a ranked-choice voting system where voters can pick three candidates in order.

Breed's campaign had no comment.
