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.
