FFRONTLINES, the Newspaper of the Left

No other newspaper on the Left, or a mainstream
newspaper for that matter, is covering the historic
San Francisco Mayoral Election like Frontlines. 
Frontlines pushed the Green and broad left candidate
Matt Gonzalez to run for a year before he declared his
candidacy last August 8, 2003.

According to the latest USA Survey / KPIX's poll
Gonzalez is leading 52% to 45% (11/24).  In the
previous poll, Gonzalez was leading 49% to 47%
(11/14).  The Runoff Election is taking place on
Tuesday, December 9. The first round took place last
November 4, 2003.

A vast movement of students, labor unions, artists,
immigrants and Latino, African American and Chinese
community activists are now backing Gonzalez.  If he
wins will represent the defeat of the third largest
Democratic Party machine in the US and will change the
national political landscape for years to come.

Frontline published 24 articles about this election so
far and is now launching a daily online coverage of
Gonzalez and his movement.  You may follow the
