November's mayoral race is shaping out to be a battle among moderates, unless left-leaning Supervisor Aaron Peskin throws his name into the mix — something he has until June 11 to decide.

The frontrunners: Incumbent Mayor London Breed, former short-term Mayor Mark Farrell, philanthropist Daniel Lurie and District 11 Supervisor Ahsha Safaí.

"This year, the electorate would seem to be leaning moderate. And, lo, multiple moderates have entered the fray. Moderates have the clear advantage — and, as a result of that, every individual candidate is incentivized to stay in the race, work for his or her own benefit, and dilute their collective leverage."
