Eleven candidates qualified Thursday for the race to replace now-Congresswoman Janice Hahn on the Los Angeles City Council.

They include Assemblyman Warren Furutani (D-Gardena), who is backed by the Democratic Party and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and former Councilman Rudy Svorinich Jr., who is only eligible to run for another term due to a change in term limits. Meanwhile, the fire and police unions are each backing separate candidates.
