Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn has established an exploratory campaign committee for a possible run for California lieutenant governor in 2010.

Hahn has served on the council since 2001, representing a district that stretches from San Pedro to Watts, and has one of L.A.'s most recognizable political names. She is the daughter of the late Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn and the sister of former Los Angeles Mayor James K. Hahn.

Hahn filed papers with the California secretary of state for "The Janice Hahn Lieutenant Governor 2010 Exploratory Committee."

Hahn was reelected in March to a third council term. Because of term limits, she must leave office in 2013.
