Tran out, Daucher in
|Both the FlashReport and Orange Punch are reporting that Assemblyman Van Tran is dropping out of his state Senate race.|
That leaves the field fairly empty for Lynn Daucher who will face off against either Assemblyman Tom Umberg or Lou Correa, two Democrats that look to have a bruising primary.
The Senate seat is considered the most (and only) competitive seat this fall. It would hardly alter the balance of power in the Senate (from 25-15 to 24-16, if the Republicans win) but would be big for bragging rights.
