The primary election will be held May 21. If no candidates attains the 50-percent-plus-one vote share needed to avoid a runoff, the top two finishers will square off in a July 30 general election.
The Legislature has been in flux somewhat since former state senators Juan Vargas, D-San Diego, and Gloria Negrete McLeod, D-Chino, ascended to Congress in November. Hueso took over Vargas' old Senate seat; Assemblywoman Norma Torres, D-Pomona, and Ontario Mayor Paul Leon will face off for McLeod's seat in a May runoff.
