Bonta, Hochman Will Face Off In California’s AG Race

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Republican Nathan Hochman will battle California’s Democratic attorney general in the November general election. Figures released Thursday show that Hochman got 18% of the vote in the June 7 primary. Rob Bonta won 54.8% and three other contenders were way behind. California law says the top two vote-getters advance to the general election. Bonta was the only Democrat in the race and he’s expected to win easily in a state that overwhelmingly favors Democrats. Hochman is a former federal prosecutor and assistant U.S. attorney general and was the endorsed candidate of the Republican Party.
