Challengers to Sheriff Baca Pile Up

Hosted by

Lee Baca has been Los Angeles County Sheriff since 1998, and he's running for re-election next year. Supervisor Gloria Molina wrote to the Los Angeles Times complaining that "not one challenger" had "stepped forward to rescue" the department from Baca's hands. That was this past Saturday. Now, just five days later, four opposing candidates have announced — and there may be more to come. Robert Faturechi reports for the Times.
