With Rep. Ed Royce (R-Yorba Linda/Fullerton) announcing his retirement, it was predicted that several Republicans would enter the race to succeed him. Democrats already had six candidates competing before the Congressman decided not to seek re-election. In addition to former state Assemblywoman Young Kim, who Rep. Royce has already endorsed, ex-state Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar), Orange County Supervisor and former Fullerton Mayor Shawn Nelson, and La Mirada City Councilman Andrew Sarega have formed candidate committees to compete in the June 5th jungle primary.
