Bob Filner stepped down as San Diego mayor Friday afternoon after only nine months in office. 

His departure followed allegations of sexual harrassment and lawsuits by 19 women. 

The race is on to replace Filner in a November special election. 

Until then, the mayor's office is being temporarily filled by city council president and fellow Democrat Todd Gloria, who is contemplating a run for the permanent post.

Guest: Todd Gloria, interim mayor of San Diego
