Alex Villanueva vs. Janice Hahn is a Total Dud

“It’s a joke.”

That’s how one political consultant described ex-L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva’s campaign for the Board of Supervisors 4th District.

The former lawman, who is trying to unseat Janice Hahn, is “running on fumes,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

“According to his most recent fundraising report, Villanueva owes $17,000 to the firm running his campaign, TAB Communications. He’s loaned himself $7,500. As of Jan. 20, he had a little less than $7,800 cash on hand, the report said.”

Villanueva insists his message is getting out to voters somehow, and that it will carry him through. Few political observers believe that. The major donors to his past campaign for sheriff don’t appear to buy it either because they aren’t ponying up the cash this time.  

Residents have already started casting ballots in the primary election. The final day to vote is March 5th. If Janice Hahn wins, she will assume her third and final term on the board.
