San Francisco Mayor Dies Suddenly

San Francisco mayor Ed Lee has died. His sudden and unexpected death has put Board of Supervisors president London Breed into office as acting mayor, and roiled election campaigns of candidates seeking to replace the controversial mayor. Lee died of an apparent heart attack while shopping at a neighborhood Safeway Monday night, and was pronounced dead early Tuesday morning. San Francisco officials held a press conference at city hall Tuesday.
