I got a preliminary list of candidates for the 2004 election today at the
Department of Elections. These are only the candidates of which San
Francisco is aware; if a candidate pulled papers in another county, then SF
won't know about them yet. Note the absence of a number of incumbents so
far; this means that they are probably intending to pay the full filing fee
rather than collecting signatures in lieu. More interesting is the absence
of major-party challengers to the incumbents or heirs apparent.
