Nathan Fletcher is leading over Bonnie Dumanis in their race for the District 4 seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, according to preliminary results.
"I do believe we can make change," Fletcher said. "We’re beginning to point our county in a new direction. We’re beginning to talk about issues that clearly the voter of San Diego want to see addressed."
Fletcher’s wife, Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher, is leading in her own race for State Assembly 80th District, according to preliminary results.
She called Fletcher’s race a “blowout.”
Two board seats were up for grabs from Districts 4 and 5.
The candidates included Bonnie Dumanis and Nathan Fletcher who are running for the District 4 seat, and Jim Desmond and Michelle Gomez who are running for the District 5 seat.
