For those following the special election on 11 April in California’s 50th House district, the North [San Diego] County Times ran a profile of the candidates on Sunday.
Meanwhile, polls show Francine Busby with a large lead, but also an irrelevant one. She would need a majority of votes cast on 11 April to win outright, and she is ten-to-fifteen percentage points short of that. Failing a majority, she will meet the leading Republican (and other registered parties’ leading candidates) in a June runoff, to be held the same day as the closed partisan primaries for the candidates for November’s regular general election.
Two polls disagree on the ranking of the more important race with the race being conducted on 11 April: That for the leading Republican candidate who will face (and almost certainly defeat) Busby in June. The two polls agree on which candidates are bunched within the margin of error for winning the open Republican primary occuring within this special election: Brian Bilbray, Eric Roach, and Howard Kaloogian. (Unsolicited advice to Democratic voters: Pick your preferred runoff-mate from these three!)
