As we look ahead to November’s general election, La Jolla Patch is devoted to bringing you the information you need about every race in town. Here's our start on the candidates and issues we'll be covering as November draws near.
President Barack Obama has visited San Diego County in the run-up to the election. Republican candidate Mitt Romney has ties to La Jolla, and a Patch columnist thinks he can win.
At the state level, Assemblyman Marty Block will face former Assemblyman George Plescia for the 39th State Senate seat while businessman Ralph Denney will try to unseat incumbent Toni Atkins for the 78th Assembly District seat.
The San Diego mayor's race will be the focus of our coverage. Frontrunner Carl DeMaio is already after his primary win on June 5. But a new poll puts Bob Filner in the lead.
