Close Tie for Second in Governor Race


There is just around two weeks left before the June 5 primary, and it's going to be a close call. Republican John Cox and Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa are in a close race for second place for California Governor. 

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom led both Cox and Villaraigosa by 10 percentage points or more, which almost guarantees him the number one spot on the November ballot. 

Newsom's campaign has used advertising as the strongest attempt to manipulate the primary vote in his favor. 

According to the survey, 39% of voters were still undecided on who they wanted elected. Newsom leads in favor with 21% of voters. Villaraigosa and Cox are basically tied at 11% and 10%. 

Around 51% of Californian voters favored a repeal in the 2017 statewide increase in gas taxes and vehicle license fees approved by Gov. Jerry Brown and the state Legislature. This is something that Cox has fully endorsed and the repeal is headed for the November ballot.
