VIDEO: Ca Senator Wiener says Lee was fine yesterday

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON/AP) -- California State Sen. Scott Wiener says he was "floored" to learn of the sudden death of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee on Tuesday morning.

He tells KRON4 that he just held a press conference with Lee on Monday and the mayor was his normal friendly and jovial self.

Wiener, a former member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, says Lee "wasn't the flashiest guy in the world, but he worked hard and it was an honor to work with him."

Wiener says Lee has not been given enough credit for his work on affordable housing, but he believes he is arguably the most pro-housing mayor in the city's history.

Reactions on Lee's unexpected passing are pouring in from people across the political spectrum.
