Democrat Marcy Winograd this weekend will launch a bid for outgoing Democratic Rep. Jane Harman's South Bay congressional seat.
Winograd, who unsuccessfully challenged Harman in the 2010 Democratic primary, tweeted this morning that she will officially launch her campaign in Torrance on Saturday.
"I feel that we need a real progressive in the race, somebody who has been advocating for a long, long time that we need to transition from a war economy to a green economy," Winograd told the Daily Breeze.
She is the third Democrat -- and fourth candidate overall -- to announce a run for the 36th Congressional District seat. The field includes Secretary of State Debra Bowen and Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn , both Democrats, and Republican Mike Webb, the elected city attorney in Redondo Beach.
Winograd, that's me, kicks off congressional race for Harman's old seat; Sat., 10 am, Fox Drug, 1327 El Prado, Torrance, 90501. CD#36
