Citing too much bitterness within the electorate, actress Stacy Dash (R), who was challenging freshman Rep. Nanette Barragan (D-San Pedro), ended her campaign well before the June 5th primary.

Rep. Barragan, an upset winner in 2016, now faces only Compton Mayor Aja Brown (D) as a serious opponent.
