Huff over Mountjoy in Senate primary

Assemblyman Bob Huff more than doubled the vote total of his opponent Dennis Mountjoy in the Republican primary for the 29th Senate District. Complete Results

Huff will face Democrat Joseph M. Lyons in the general election.

Like nearly every other district in the state, the 60th has been gerrymandered by the legislature to heavily favor one party over the other. In the 60th, Republicans outnumber Democrats 196,000 to 149,000.

Rancho Cucamonga Democrat Russ Warner won

overwhelmingly in the primary last night
against Cynthia Rodriguez Matthews, the La Verne resident who represented the party in 2004 and 2006. Complete Results

Rep. David Dreier won easily in the Republican primary against challenger Sonny Sardo.

Warner appears to be one of the stronger candidates to challenge Dreier since the Republican was first elected in 1980. But Warner has several things working against him in the general election.

First is the 26th Congressional District’s Republican tilt. Republicans outnumber Democrats in the district 147,289 to 120,426. PDF

Dreier’s other great advantage is his massive financial war chest. Dreier reported more than $1.8 million cash on hand through May 14, dwarfing Warner’s $100,000.

Warner could be aided financially by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the general election. The committee placed Dreier on its “hit list” of Republican seats it may target in the general election.

Torres wins Assembly primary

Pomona Mayor Norma Torres was victorious yesterday in the Democratic primary for the Assembly seat being vacated by Nell Soto.

Torres received 4,493 votes, or about 47 percent of the total votes cast. That was nearly double the total of the runner-up, Ken White. Complete Results

The winner of the Republican primary was Wendy A. Maier.

The 61st Assembly District, which includes Pomona, Chino and Ontario, tilts heavily Democratic, meaning that a victory is expected in November for Torres. The result all but assures that Torres will not be running for re-election in Pomona this year.

There are 66,311 Democrats registered in the district, and 45,304 registered Republicans. Registration PDF

House of Representatives

Because the Inland Valley includes cities in three counties — Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside — there are an unusually high number of congressional districts, as well as State Senate and State Assembly districts.

Because of that overlap, political junkies (and journalists) trying to tally up all of the results on election night must refer to and add up numbers from several different counties, including Orange County.

For that reason, the links below might appear confusing, and for that I apologize in advance. To get an accurate tally for a given race, simply click on results from all two (or three) counties in a given district and add up the numbers.

I’ve been told by several county officials that later in the night the California Secretary of State might have multi-county numbers available. But for the earliest returns, it’s necessary to check the individual counties.

Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors

There are three contests today for seats on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, and two of them have local implications.

Supervisor Mike Antonovich’s district, the 5th district, covers Claremont, La Verne and San Dimas. He faces a primary challenge from Stephen Mark Hinze, a 30-year-old warehouse worker from Burbank.

Ian Thompson, a campaign spokesman for Hinze, said last week that Hinze is openly campaigning as a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

Here’s a direct link to the county results page.

The other race with local implications is in the 4th district, which includes Pomona.

Incumbent Don Knabe is running for re-election against two candidates: Marylou Cabral, another member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation; and Jay Shah, a doctor from Long Beach.
