The California Democratic Party is poised to take sides in a handful of same-party runoffs on the November ballot.
Democratic delegates throughout the state met over the weekend and last week to cast endorsement votes in a number of districts where no Democrat won the party's official backing ahead of the June 5 primary.
Here are the unofficial results of those votes, which CDP spokesman Tenoch Flores said will be certified as early as Friday if no challenges to the vote are filed.
Assembly District 18:Rob Bonta endorsed over Abel Guillen.
Assembly District 47: Joe Baca, Jr. endorsed over Cheryl Brown.
Senate District 13: Jerry Hill endorsed over Sally Lieber.
Senate District 15: Jim Beall endorsed over Joe Coto.
The party won't be taking a side in the heated 30th Congressional District battle between Democratic Reps. Howard Berman and Brad Sherman. Berman won support of a majority of delegates at the weekend vote -- a reversal from a spring convention vote that put Sherman in the lead -- but failed to hit the 60 percent threshold needed to secure an endorsement.
The party automatically backs candidates who are the sole Democrat on the November ballot, unless a successful attempt to challenge that endorsement is filed. A list of pre-primary endorsements made at the party's spring convention is posted here.
