SACRAMENTA, Calif. (AP) – Republicans think they have a chance this year to oust Rob Bont, Attorney General of the Democratic Party.
But first they have to determine who the contenders have the best chance.
Two Republicans are campaigning for the June 7 primaries.
But also Sacramento County Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, who renounced her Republican affiliation four years ago and is running as an independent.
The Republican Party hopes the harsh crime report will resonate with voters.
The Republican State Party backed former federal prosecutor Nathan Hochman.
Republicans are also running for Eric Early, who has been chief legal counsel in connection with unsuccessful attempts to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom.
