The state Senate seat vacated by the death of Jenny Oropeza is drawing the interest of some high-profile Los Angeles County politicians, including L.A. Councilwoman Janice Hahn and Assemblyman Ted Lieu (D-Torrance), who on Tuesday became the first to announce that he is in the race.

The district stretches from Long Beach to Marina del Rey. Other potential candidates include Assemblyman Warren Furutani (D-Gardena)
