The left-leaning Progressive San Diego has decided to endorse both Democrats Todd Gloria and Stephen Whitburn in the race for the District 3 San Diego City Council seat. The organization did not offer an endorsement in the June primary.

In November, the organization is “leaving it to the voters in District 3 to make up their own minds about who would best represent them.”

The organization cited minor issues with both candidates. It is concerned with Whitburn’s lack of experience in organizing progressive coalitions; and worried that Gloria might compromise his progressive principals in order to maintain good relations with politicians and community leaders.

But “Stephen and Todd both bring a wealth of policy knowledge and personal affability to the job,” the statement said.
