Democrats Ahn, Gomez heading to runoff in LA congressional race
"Gomez, a state Assemblyman, was seen as a front-runner who had the backing of much of the state's Democratic establishment, including Becerra and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Those endorsements, he said, helped show voters his qualifications for the job."
"My message is that what you're seeing here is the emergence of a new progressive Democratic coalition that's based on ideas, that we're going to represent everybody," Gomez said.
