But, it has been rumored that Democrat Assemblywoman Julia Brownley, who lives in Santa Monica, but represents Oxnard and Port Hueneme in the California Assembly is looking at the race.
So, who is left in the CA-26 race (filing opened Monday, February 13 and will close on March 9).
- Republican California State Senator Tony Strickland
- Independent/Republican Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks
- Democrat Moorpark Councilman David Pollock
- Democrat Oxnard Harbor Commissioner Jess Herrera
- Democrat Westlake Village businessman David Cruz Thayne
- Libertarian/Republican Akiva Werbalowsky
David Pollock will have his hands full with this field and Linda Parks is already chortling on Facebook that she will beat Tony Strickland when she gets into the top two at the June primary election.
However, although Linda Parks is well known in Thousand Oaks, unless she re-registers as a Democrat, Pollock or the others will likely win Democratic Party voters – whereas Tony Strickland will win the Republican vote.
Pollock has a huge Democratic Party mountain to climb, especially if Julia Brownley or Rep. Brad Sherman should decide to enter this race.
