I thought it was silly at first the idea Emma Acosta would want to run for mayor and expect to win.
But after some thought - and no, I did not hurt myself - she might be onto something.
Possibly Ted Houghton.
What do all those three have in common? They are all Republican men.
All three would be going after the same narrow slice of muni voters.
Normally party ID does not matter in a muni race, but here party ID might be Acosta's biggest selling point...in addition to the fact she is a Hispanic woman.
Acosta won't be raising money, but in race with three Republicans going after the same small pot of Westsiders, Acosta won't need it.
All Acosta needs is enough Democrats to turn out, and in a low-voter turnout muni election, that bar ain't too high.
