Kamala Harris is far ahead in the AG. primary, and we can call that one for her at this point. Chris Kelly spent a lot of money and got nowhere. Dave Jones is going to win the Dem insurance commish nod. The Supt. of Public Instruction is more interesting; Larry Acevas, a retired school superintendent who has the support of the L.A. Times but wasn’t much on the political radar in a race involving two high-profile Dems from the state Legislature, is actually in the lead statewide. Tom Torlakson, who has the support of the teachers union, is close behind him – -and Gloria Romero, the fan of school privatization, is way behind.
