The Carmel Democrat told The San Luis Obispo Tribune that he'll run for the 17th Senate District as drawn in maps adopted yesterday by the independent Citizens Redistricting Commission. Democrats hold a 16-point registration over Republicans in the new Central Coast district.

Blakeslee, of San Luis Obispo, won his current seat, the 15th Senate District, in a 2010 special election. Democrats also held a registration advantage in that district.
