Former state Assemblyman Fletcher led narrowly in District 4 with 28.9 percent of the vote to 27.5 percent for Dumanis, a former district attorney. Former Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña was third at 21.7 percent and Omar Passons fourth at 14.4 percent. The district, long represented by termed-out Supervisor Ron Roberts, covers a wide area of the City of San Diego.



“We’re going to get the bureaucracy busted when I get in, and we’re going to take care of all the issues that are so important to us,” Dumanis told supporters during a Republican election night gathering at the U.S. Grant hotel.

In District 5, which stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Imperial County line, San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond, a Republican, held a wide lead at 45.1 percent in the race to succeed termed-out Supervisor Bill Horn.

Democrat Michelle Gomez, a legislative analyst and volunteer, was in second place with 22.2 percent of the vote, while long-time Republican Oceanside City Councilman Jerry Kern was in third with 20.4 percent.
