SACRAMENTO – The latest Field Poll found that most voters aren’t paying much attention to the California’s open Senate primary yet. With the election more than a year away, nearly 60 percent of the likely voters are undecided as to who they would vote for to replace retiring Democrat Barbara Boxer.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris leads a still growing pack of contenders, but received only 19 percent of the first choice votes and 58 percent offered no preference.
Three other announced candidates, Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (8 percent), Republican Assemblyman Rocky Chavez (6 percent) and former state Republican Party chair Tom Del Beccaro (5 percent) trail.
Others considering bids include Democratic Congressman Xavier Becerra (3 percent) and former state Republican Party chair Duf Sundheim (1 percent).
