Sanchez Dropping Out Of Race Against Supervisor Don Wagner

Former Representative Loretta Sanchez is dropping her candidacy for the 3rd Supervisor District, in which she was challenging Supervisor Don Wagner.

Wagner, a former Irvine Mayor and Assemblyman, defeated Sanchez 42% to 37% in the March special election to fill the vacant 3rd Supervisor District seat.  Sanchez, a Democrat, quickly vowed to seek a re-match in the regularly scheduled March 2020 primary.

Sanchez’ decision leaves Wagner without an official opponent for re-election. Her decision leaves Orange County Democrats in a lurch: candidate filing closes in 28 days, leaving Democrats little time to find a viable candidate with the name ID and fundraising prowess to quickly stand-up the robust campaign effort necessary against incumbent Supervisor Don Wagner – who has been campaigning non-stop since winning the special election.
