Democratic candidate for California Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi was recently noted as the Los Angeles Times’ pick in the upcoming Nov. 5th election.
The paper chose Garamendi power Republican candidate Gary Mendoza, saying “Garamendi has the experience to take firm control of this office as soon as he is sworn in. Voters should elect Garamendi to continue the job of straightening out the mess created by Chuck Quackenbush, forced to resign because of political scandal.”
The Times continued, “Mendoza, a budding star for the GOP, is a former state corporations commissioner with some fresh and interesting ideas and some achievements in dealing with health insurance and HMO issues as corporations chief. But Garamendi’s experience tips the scale in his favor.”
