Assemblywoman Betsy Butler found herself in a tough race against fellow Democrat Torie Osborn when she moved into a West Hollywood district to run for a second term. Labor unions have also kicked in cash to help one of Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly’s challengers in the safe GOP 33rd Assembly District.
Some congressional incumbents are also facing tough races. Republican Rep. Gary Miller, for example, is running in a crowded field in a district he had to move to in order to run. Several other incumbents are considered vulnerable in the fall.
