ALAN LOWENTHAL RUNNING FOR CONGRESS—VS. RICHARDSON, SANCHEZ?By Greater Long Beach
California state Sen. Alan Lowenthal told reporter Kyle Trygstad of the Washington, D.C., news site RollCall.com Friday that he is running in a proposed Congressional district in Long Beach, setting up a possible three-way Democratic primary with Reps. Laura Richardson and Linda Sánchez.
The California Citizens Redistricting Commission released its first draft map a week ago, and both Members’ homes were drawn into a new Long Beach-based district. However, both could still run in other districts, and the map will be altered over the next two months before it’s finalized Aug. 15.
