The Race for Mayor of Los Angeles
The race for mayor is heating up. Several candidates are hoping to take the seat of mayor of Los Angeles, a position held by Eric Garcetti for the past eight years. Rep. Karen Bass is the current front-runner, according to a recent poll conducted by UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies.
The poll found that Bass, D-Los Angeles, was the first-choice candidate for 25% of registered voters and 32% of likely voters, with Councilman Kevin de León coming in second, with 8% of both registered voters and likely voters saying he was their first choice.
Real estate developer Rick Caruso was the first choice for 7% of registered voters and 8% of likely voters, and Councilman Joe Buscaino and City Attorney Mike Feuer were both first choices for 4% of registered voters and 4% of likely voters.
The primary for the 2022 Los Angeles mayoral election will take place June 7, with the top two finishers squaring off in the general election Nov. 8.
