SAN DIEGO (AP) - It took Democrats 20 years to recapture the mayor's seat in San Diego and less than nine months for one of their own to be driven out.

Bob Filner's disgraced exit amid a flurry of sexual harassment allegations gives Republicans another chance. Just don't expect any candidates to dwell on the former mayor as the campaign to replace him kicks into high gear.

The former 10-term congressman isn't mentioned in debates, in campaign mailers or at pep rallies by candidates. Former Mayor Jerry Sanders calls it "Bob Filner fatigue."

If no one wins a majority in the Nov. 19 election - a likely scenario with 11 candidates - the top two finishers compete in a runoff.
