Faulconer victory cited as model for GOP

Mayor Kevin Faulconer was slated to appear at the California Republican Party convention in San Francisco on Friday, where his recent mayoral victory is being held up as a model for Republican politicians statewide.

Faulconer, who was to be feted in two separate receptions on Friday night, said he plans to tell the party that emphasizing inclusiveness as well as fiscal discipline can help the party win in urban areas where Democrats have more voters.

“We ran a campaign that included everyone and left no votes on the table,” Faulconer said. “We went to every community, every demographic, and every party affiliation -- Republican, Democrat and independent -- to spread our message.”

Tony Krvaric, who chairs the local Republican Party, will repeat that message on Saturday morning through a talk on "The Anatomy of a Win: The Kevin Faulconer campaign."

Faulconer is the only Republican to lead a major city in California, making San Diego the largest city in the nation with a Republican mayor.
