In most statewide races, no Repub­li­can can­di­dates

Los Angeles Times - - ESSENTIAL POLITICS - — John My­ers

No Repub­li­can had filed pa­per­work as of Mon­day to run for statewide of­fice in five races.

Only Democrats have said they are seek­ing the of­fices of sec­re­tary of state, trea­surer, con­troller, in­sur­ance com­mis­sioner and su­per­in­ten­dent of pub­lic in­struc­tion in 2018.

All of those po­si­tions, like the top roles in state gov­ern­ment, are cur­rently held by Democrats. While not com­pletely sur­pris­ing, it’s a stark re­minder of how the GOP has shrunk in statewide vi­a­bil­ity in re­cent years.
