Former Navy Lt. Commander Gil Cisneros is fast becoming the leading Democratic candidate to replace retiring Rep. Ed Royce (R-Yorba Linda/ Fullerton). Yesterday, neighboring Congresswoman Norma Torres (D-Pomona) officially endorsed Mr. Cisneros becoming the seventh member of the congressional delegation to do so. The others are Reps. Pete Aguilar (D-Redlands), Grace Napolitano (D-Norwalk), Raul Ruiz (D-Coachella), Linda Sanchez (D-Whittier), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Downey), and Nanette Barragan (D-San Pedro). Mr. Cisneros has attracted many more state and local Democratic officials to his team. Money is no object for him, either. The candidate became a California lottery winner, when he hit a $266 million jackpot.
