    Analysis

    This wide-open coastal and solidly Democrat districts will be one of the most interesting to watch in the June 2014 primary.

    Sonoma supe Efren Carillo is considered the early frontrunner, although his recent brushes with the law may provide catch-up time for other candidates, in particular Healdsburg councilmember Jim Wood and nonprofit leader Hezekiah Allen.
