|(Feb 15, 2019, 8:20 a.m., updated Feb. 16, 2:50 p.m.) -- As part of LBREPORT.com's continuing "Follow the Money" coverage, we provide links below to newly-filed (deadline was Feb. 14) campaign contribution data (as of Feb. 9) for candidates seeking to election to a SE L.A. County state Senate seat that includes roughly half of Long Beach (map below.) LBREPORT.com will analyzed the sources separately; we're webposting the data as available now.
Readers will notice that the candidates set up both 2019 and 2020 campaign committees. The 2020 committees allowed them to begin collecting contributions before the Governor declared the seat vacant; the candidates can (and did) transfer sums to their 2019 committee. If no candidate receives 50%+1 on March 26, the top two finishers proceed to a June 4 runoff.

LB Councilman Al Austin, who announced on Feb. 1 that he's ended campaigning for the seat but whose name will appear on the March 26 ballot, reported $28,881.09 cash on hand and hasn't endorsed any specific candidate in the race.
2 Repubs and 1 Green are also in the race. The full ballot candidate list is here
In the 33rd state Senate district, roughly 55% of voters registered themselves as Dems. A little over 28% of the district's voters registered as "Decline to State" and just under 12% are Repubs.
Voters in roughly half of Long Beach, the largest city within the district, will have an opportunity to choose on March 26.
The CA Sec'y of State's website indicates voter registration in the LB-Huntington Park state Senate district is roughly 55% Dem, 28% "Decline to State" and just under 12% Repub. If no single candidate receives 50%+1 on March 26, the two highest finishers (regardless of Party) proceed to a June 4 runoff.
