Art Torres were headed for a runoff after a historic election Tuesday that will give Los Angeles County its first Latino supervisor this century and end a decade of conservative control of the board. With all precincts reporting in the 1st District, Molina collected 34.8% of the vote but fell short of the majority required to avoid a Feb. 19 runoff against Torres, a fellow liberal Democrat who finished second with 25.7%.
