As Ranked-Choice Votes Are Tallied in NY Mayoral Race, Professor McDaniel Recalls 2010 Oakland Campaigns

Thursday, June 24, 2021
THE NEW YORK TIMES -- In the 2010 mayoral race in Oakland, California, the eventual victor, Jean Quan, trailed by nearly nine points after the first round. But in that race, Ms. Quan and another candidate cross-endorsed each other and united in an “anybody-but-Don” attack against the front-runner, Don Perata. “It was really cooperative campaigning between two people who were more on the left,” said Jason McDaniel, an associate professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University.
