A Look Ahead to June, Beyond the Top of the Ticket

The big story in California this week is the June 7 primary election. While the focus has been at the top of the ticket, there are other races and other candidates on the ballot. Kamala Harris remains, by far, the frontrunner in the race to fill Barbara Boxer’s U.S. Senate seat. Also retiring is Lois Capps, who will vacate her seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Capps may not be the most familiar name to Angelenos, but these LA politicians who are either being termed out or are running for new offices probably are: Janice Hahn, Don Knabe, Mike Antonovich, and Mark Ridley-Thomas. What other races should be on voters’ radars?
