In the race to become the next Mayor of Los Angeles, two of the most important concerns to consider are public safety and finding shelter for the city’s homeless population.
According to the Associated Press, Los Angeles mayoral candidates Rick Caruso and Karen Bass will face off in the general election in November after the two candidates earned the top two places in the state’s primary on Tuesday. Caruso and Bass will compete for the position of mayor of Los Angeles.
In the primary election process used in California, all candidates, regardless of their membership with a political party, appear on the same ballot, and the top two vote-getters move on to the final election. This occurs regardless of the voters’ preferences for which party should win. When the Associated Press decided to call the race, Caruso had received 31 percent of the vote, while Bass had received 39 percent.
The wealthy real estate developer Caruso is running for governor and is running a campaign focused on law and order issues. When Caruso made the decision earlier this year to run for mayor of Los Angeles, he was a Republican at the time, but he switched parties in the nick of time and is now a Democrat. He has spent tens of millions of dollars of his own money to fund his campaign and has been inundating the city with advertisements emphasizing his promises to take immediate action.
Bass, a former state lawmaker who has served as the representative for a congressional district that spans communities south and west of downtown Los Angeles for the past decade, was on the short list of potential running mates for President Biden in the 2020 election.
