Both money and the Hollywood elite are changing the race for mayor of Los Angeles
A fundraiser for Los Angeles mayoral candidate Karen Bass was held on the roof of Bad Robot Productions on Tuesday night. Participants mingle in Santa Monica, above “Los Angeles’ coolest office,” found themselves among some of Hollywood’s electoral elite. J. J. Abrams, Katie McGrath, Shonda Rhymes were all there to describe the career and potential of the former alleged race leader, who will spend the next few weeks facing rich developer Rick Caruso at the Democratic primaries. .
For Bass, this event would ideally do two things: raise money and secure it as a favorite and accurate sample for Hollywood’s liberal set. But any cash in the company or an increase in the number of individual donors from such a stellar event will give a congresswoman a largely insignificant incentive; these figures may be an indicator of viability, but it is unclear whether this is only optics, if the amount of money is lower than the rival billionaire. Recent data, however, show that the military trunks of the two leading candidates are skewed on two sides – in terms of the huge amount of money Caruso in the bank and the number of people Bass is throwing funding at. Keeping track of money and these donor numbers is a surefire way to feel the trajectory of a campaign and potentially predict the outcome of a race. But this year, looking at who is funding Bass or what influential figures have moved to Camp Caruso, the division in the city is starting to crystallize – as are some truths about what these candidates need to do to win.
