Day, Supervisor Chris Daly appears to have the lead in the District
6 supervisor's race. A phone sweep of District 6 voters that identified

every major member-based organization in San Francisco. Supervisor
Daly has been endorsed by the San Francisco Democratic Party,
San Francisco Green Party, San Francisco Tenants Union, San Francisco

to the polls.
"The only poll that counts is the one on Election Day,"
Supervisor Daly cautioned. "We may be ahead, but there is
still much work left to do."
