Should we call this the "endorsement of defeat"? But then someone was going to be the recipient.
Mayor Antonio Villar along with the likes of CD 5 Councilman Paul Koretz, County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia and some LACCD Trustees, have endorsed Assemblyman Warren Furutani
to replace newly-elected Congresswoman Janice Hahn for the CD 15 City Council seat.
Furutani's connections via his time on both LAUSD and LACCD (and his votes on construction contracts) made him the logical choice for Mayor Villar's endorsement (will there ever be a day when Villar endorses someone with McOsker DNA?).
The Daily News is also reporting that Pat McOsker has picked up the endorsement of the California Nurses Association. This highlights the "potential union-splitting" in the upcoming race, which would benefit someone like Rudy Svorinich.
