California ex-Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (D), who served for ten terms before launching a losing US Senate effort in 2016, is attempting a political comeback. Ms. Sanchez announced that she will run for an open seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors in a March special election. Supervisor Todd Spitzer (R) will soon resign to become the Orange County District Attorney, thus opening the seat.
The Orange County Board of Supervisors has five elected members with significant power over southern California land use issues. Ms. Sanchez can expect major opposition in what will be a significant local special election campaign.
