We’ve examined more than 40 bold claims by San Diego’s four mayoral candidates in the past year and now their big day is just around the corner. Two will advance through Tuesday’s primary election.
Our last edition of Fact Check TV before the election examines two more claims by Congressman Bob Filner and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.
Filner claimed he was the only candidate in the race who hadn’t received campaign contributions from San Diego Gas & Electric. He cited the comparison to cast himself as free from special interests.
Dumanis argued people shouldn’t fret over polls that put her in last place. She claimed the same polls put her 20 points down in 2002, when she won her first term in office as district attorney.
So are their claims true or false? Andrew Donohue explains in the video below.
