11:05 pm
wondering, would he consider going back to the public defenders office? we know he served there for four years before assuming office in 2019 but other supporters were quick to refute that, saying he belongs in the da's office so there is speculation, could he run again for reelection? we will see. liz: that will be fascinating to see. we appreciate it. dan: recall supporters are celebrating tonight. tim johns is in san francisco where he spent the evening with them. obviously, they are ready and anticipating a big change in the da's office. tim: that is right, dan. since the results were announced a couple of hours ago, there has been a lot of celebration and cheering here in san francisco. it is worth noting that the supporters we talked to say you have to remember that this race has not just gotten voters here but also across the nation.
