Gov. Gavin Newsom is throwing his support behind Bob Hertzberg in his race for County Supervisor against outgoing WeHo Councilmember Lindsey Horvath.
“As governor, I work every day to take on California’s biggest challenges,” Newsom said. “Bob Hertzberg does the same.
Bob and I worked together to pass some of the nation’s strongest gun safety laws. He’s led on environmental protection, abortion rights and housing for the homeless. I can’t think of anyone more prepared to serve L.A. County than Bob Hertzberg.”
The endorsement follows the release of two recent polls showing Hertzberg ahead of Horvath.
David Binder Research conducted a recent survey with a sample of 800 likely voters in Los Angeles County’s 3rd Supervisorial District. Results showed Hertzberg leading the race over Horvath by 7% and increasing that lead to 25% after positive and negative messages on both candidates. A poll by the J. Wallis Opinion Research Survey found that 40.3% of WeHo voters intended to cast their ballots for Hertzberg, while only 13% planned to vote for Horvath.
