The latest vote totals in L.A. County’s primary election show WeHo Councilmember Lindsey Horvath closing the gap between her and state Sen. Bob Hertzberg, the top vote-getter in the race for County Supervisor.
As of Monday evening, Hertzberg’s lead over Horvath stands at 11,331 votes, down from about 15,000 on election night. Horvath now claims 27.75 percent of the votes. Barring a surprise, the two will face each other in the November runoff election.
With 664,957 votes, County Assessor Jeffrey Prang has crossed the threshold to avoid a runoff against second-place finisher Sandy Sun. Prang had not captured 50 percent of ballots counted on election night.

Los Angeles mayoral candidate Karen Bass continued to outpace Rick Caruso. The progressive darling trailed on election night but has since surpassed the real estate developer who spent tens of millions more on the campaign. Bass now has 43 percent of the votes, compared to Caruso’s 35 percent.
Los Angeles City Council will see at least one new face next year: Eunisses Herndandez, a community organizer and first-time candidate who unseated her opponent Gil Cedillo 54 to 45 percent. Progressive candidates Hugo Soto-Martinez and Erin Darling look well-positioned to win in November, while incumbents Bob Blumenfield, Monica Rodriguez and Curren Price handily defeated their upstart opponents.
