Newsom garnering Latino support in LA

All of Mayor Gavin Newsom’s weekend jaunts to Los Angeles are seeming to pay off. Newsom, who is only leading his Republican opponent Abel Maldonado by 4 percentage points in the polls, has garnered a huge amount of Latino support in East Los Angeles, as evidenced by media reports detailing the support Newsom received while he was in Los Angeles this past weekend. It’s a good sign for the mayor who is up against a Spanish-speaking Maldonado, who is known as a moderate maverick in parts of the state.

This news is probably the best birthday gift the mayor could get – he turns 43 today – along with a Giants win.
