Hahn to Open S.P. Campaign Office Thursday

Rep. Janice Hahn is opening a campaign office in downtown San Pedro Thursday. The May 3 event takes place from 6 to 8 pm in conjunction with the monthly First Thursday artwalk and street festival. The office is located at 447 W. Sixth St. View the event details here.

Hahn and Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Long Beach) are competing for the new 44th Congressional District seat. The primary election is June 5.

Richardson’s campaign is headquartered in Carson and online at www.laurarichardson.us.

Candidates Interview for Newspaper Endorsement

Hahn and Richardson interviewed with the editorial board of the San Fernando Valley-based LA Daily News, the flagship newspaper in the chain that includes the Daily Breeze.

Each made her case for endorsement, and, by extension, election to the newly drawn 44th Congressional District.

The candidates’ arguments are summarized in “Rep. Janice Hahn is all about the ports” and “Rep. Laura Richardson: ‘I am this district.’”

The Daily News has not yet made its endorsement for the June 5 election.

UPDATE -- May 4 -- The Daily News endorses Hahn.
