In 2014 Supervisor Pat Bates of the 5th District will termed-out of this seat. It is confirmed that state Senator Mimi Walters will run for this position next year to avoid political extinction herself.
This supervisorial district belongs to Mimi. No one in this area have the high name identification and financial resources to challenge Mimi.
What is more interesting is the special election that a Mimi victory will trigger. Assemblyman Alan Mansoor and Assemblyman Don Wagner are both eyeing this senate district.
Between Wagner and Mansoor, I don’t know who is the stronger candidate.
