DescriptionThe third-place finisher in San Diego's mayoral election endorsed former Police Chief Jerry Sanders on Thursday, throwing his support to a fellow Republican in a runoff against a Democratic city councilwoman and surf shop owner.

Steve Francis, a wealthy businessman who poured about $2 million into his campaign, won 24 percent of the vote in Tuesday's primary, trailing Sanders, who finished with 27 percent.
