Several other Democrats raised enough money to mount substantial campaigns in the district, whose boundaries were drawn to favor their party. They blitzed voters with mail and phone calls in the campaign's final weeks. Republican Nathan Mintz, Green Party member Lisa Ann Green and Libertarian Ethan Musulin were unopposed Tuesday and will be on the November ballot.
Another contested primary in a Democratic stronghold took place in the Southwest Los Angeles/Westside's 47th Assembly District, where five Democrats filed to succeed Bass. Mitchell and Jones-Sawyer were considered frontrunners from the start, although homebuilder Ed Nicoletti ran a vigorous campaign. Other Democrats on the ballot were arbitrator Robert L. "Bobby" Jones and Rafael Garcia-Rangel, a counselor at a nonprofit agency. Republican Lady Cage and Libertarian Sean P. McGary were unopposed and will be on the November ballot.
