Rick Orlov, staff writer for the LA Daily News, writes about LA's mayoral race and what can be expected between now and the May 5th election. Below is an excerpt from the original article, which was published on January 6, 2013.
"Even before he qualified for matching funds last week, Greuel was urging the inclusion of Emanuel Pleitez in the mayoral debates as a way to further erode independent voters who might be attracted to James or to either Councilman Eric Garcetti or Councilwoman Jan Perry, who have been campaigning hard on the eastside.
Heading in to the final month, Garcetti and Greuel are the leading fundraisers - each with about $3.4 million, including matching funds. Perry has $1.8 million, with the matching funds, but she says the next reports due on Jan. 31 will show her closer."
