Zellerbach upsets; Stone loses

In the June 8 primary election, Judge Paul Zellerbach upset sitting District Attorney Rod Pacheco, Riverside County Third District Supervisor Jeff Stone was unsuccessful in his bid for State Senate, Sheriff Stan Sniff cruised to a full elected term, and Bill Emmerson switched Chambers and strolled to election in Senate District 37.

Riverside County Fifth District Supervisor Marion Ashley and Second District Supervisor John Tavaglione were reelected by large margins, and in a closer race, appointed Fourth District Supervisor John J. Benoit was elected to a full term over Gary Jeandron by a margin of 55.8 to 44.1.

Otherwise the night played out in California much as predicted, with Propositions 13 (retrofitting), 14 (open primary) passing and 15 (trial balloon for public funding of campaigns), 16 (PGE utility initiative) and 17 (Mercury Insurance initiative) going down to defeat.

In the fall Carly Fiorina will take on Senator Barbara Boxer and Meg Whitman will face former Governor Jerry Brown.
