Former Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner endorses in crowded race to replace Jane Harman
Former state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner has endorsed Hermosa Beach City Councilman Patrick "Kit" Bobko in Tuesday's crowded special election to replace former Rep. Jane Harman (D-Venice).
Bobko is one of six Republicans on the ballot in the strongly Democratic, largely coastal 36th Congressional District. Poizner, who lost last year's hard-fought Republican gubernatorial primary to former EBay chief Meg Whitman, is one of the highest-profile Republicans to endorse in this race.
In all, there are 16 candidates on the ballot.
