The domino effect from Gloria Negrete McLeod's 2012 election to congress continues with a special election to fill Norma Torres's Assembly District. Torres was elected to the State Senate on May 14. The primary is scheduled for July 23 and there will almost certainly be a September 24 runoff.
Manuel Saucedo has picked up the endorsement of former Congressman Joe Baca. From what I can recall, this is the first "three-way" split of the Democratic politics in the region, with Gloria Negrete McLeod supporting Danielle Soto and Norma Torres endorsing Freddie Rodriguez. A fourth Democrat, Jason Rothman, has important family ties (dad is mayor of Pomona) and has the only education ballot label.
Ontario mayor Paul Leon dropped his Republican registration that he carried through the special election for the State Senate seat against Torres. He is thus the only NPP candidate on the ballot, and Dorothy Pineda is running as the lone Republican.
This will be a brutal primary and t . . .
