LA Mayor


Recommended Posts

Need as much help as i can get. Rhiordan demonstrates that Reps can win there, i'm just having difficulty finding candidates....

Antonio Villaraigosa is the incumbent and will probably run for re-election. He's a Democrat.

Los Angeles mayoral elections are a bit strange in that there are no party primaries. Therefore Villaraigosa, a Democrat, defeated James Hahn in the last election, who was also a Democrat.

There is one "jungle" primary for all candidates - if no candidate gets 50%, a runoff is held. If a candidate gets 50%, that candidate wins and becomes mayor.

Some possible candidates are:

Antonio Villaraigosa (D) - incumbent

James Hahn (D)

Robert Hertzberg (D)

Richard Alarcón (D)

Xavier Becerra (D)

That's all I can come up with for now.
