Republican Mike Webb has officially jumped in the race to replace outgoing Democratic Rep. Jane Harman in the 36th Congressional District.
"Our government needs to stop indulging the concerns of special interests and instead start effectively addressing the need of Americans to be able to find a job, keep more of their hard earned paychecks and care for themselves and their families. I will choose what is best for our country and the residents of the South Bay -- not what is best for reelection," he said in a statement.
Webb, the first Republican to enter the race, so far will face Democrats Debra Bowen, the secretary of state, and Janice Hahn, a member of the Los Angeles City Council.
Webb is the elected city attorney in Redondo Beach. Read more about him in Capitol Alert's earlier coverage on Republicans considering entering the fray.
