Steve Francis is out of bed. His campaign just sent out a statement conceding the election to incumbent Mayor Jerry Sanders.

The statement said:

I have just called Mayor Sanders to congratulate him on his victory. I want to thank my campaign team and the countless volunteers and supporters who worked tirelessly for change at City Hall. I particularly want to thank my wife Gayle and my entire family for their hard work and support throughout the campaign.

I believe that we successfully drew attention to serious issues, and I hope that the dialogue on these issues will continue. I am optimistic and confident that the Mayor and the new City Council will begin to address the challenges that still face our City. I pledge to continue my efforts to help unite San Diego and make our community a better place to live.
