  1. Perfectly timed pregnancy: baby will be born in the thick of campaign season. Cynical move or not?

  2. Good thing to know that in the view of Newsom’s mouthpiece you can’t start a family unless you have a kid.

    Way to alienate the majority of San Franciscans who have families without kids, Nate!


  3. Oh not, not more Newsom, is this an “Omen”.

  4. In actuality this news was first reported in an email yesterday from PRO-SF with an email titled:

    “SF’s Absent City Father (g) Newsom”.

  5. yeah, ‘cos you know it was a race…..
