Pomona Mayor Norma Torres, winner in yesterday’s Democratic primary for the 61st Assembly District, said she “felt great” about the result.
“But this is just the beginning,” she added. “One down, one to go.”
In November’s general election, Torres will face Republican Wendy A. Maier, who defeated Benjamin Lopez in yesterday’s primary.
“I’m looking at this campaign as I would any other campaign,” Torres said. “I’m not taking anything for granted, and I’m going to take it very seriously.”
Torres said that she will not be running for re-election in November for the mayoral seat in Pomona. She added that she was going to wait to see who was running before endorsing any mayoral candidate.
She said she hadn’t heard who was planning to run for mayor.
“I think everyone and their mother is thinking of running for mayor, but I’m not sure,” she said. “I’m not talking to folks about that. I wanted to get through my primary first, and we’ll see.”
