Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Fresnomayor.JPGFresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin has filed papers to run for state Controller.

Swearengin, a Republican, would likely face two Democrats -- Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez and Board of Equalization member Betty Yee -- in the June primary, with the top two heading to the November general. The seat is open because State Controller John Chiang is termed out and running for state treasurer.

The Fresno Bee's John Ellis has more.
