Karen Bass moves ahead of Rick Caruso in L.A. mayor's race [View all]

U.S. Rep. Karen Bass overtook businessman Rick Caruso in the seesaw battle to be mayor of Los Angeles, with Friday’s tally putting the veteran lawmaker 4,384 votes ahead of the real estate developer in a contest that will not be settled until next week at the earliest.

The new totals from county election officials put Bass ahead by a fraction, 50.38% to 49.62%, for the first time since Caruso took a slim advantage in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Bass has now bested Caruso in the last two updates from the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office.

Going into Friday, Caruso held a tiny lead of one-half percentage point, or 2,695 votes. The fourth lead change in less than 72 hours tended to affirm pre-election predictions that a winner might not be known for a week or more after last Tuesday’s election day. The L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office promises another updated count Saturday.

With only about 30,000 votes added to the mayoral tote board Friday, Caruso’s supporters cautioned against reading too much into the new totals. But Bass partisans sounded buoyant that despite the modest overall numbers, their candidate had taken 60% of the votes revealed since Thursday.


I sure as hell hope Bass beats that DINO Caruso. He is no friend, IMO, to the general public and his plans? I say bullshit. Talks a good game for those who want the homeless hidden, but the more I see of homeless "developments," the less I see of the L.A. homeless population showing any interest. I talked to a friend who for about five years was homeless and she told me that the places have rules that restrict everything from pets to cooking on site.

Yes, there needs to be help for those out on their luck, but as I see it, the DINO is interested in building things and that means money for developers and often not solutions for those in need.
