Paper Backs De La Torre, Villines for Insurance Post
The Contra Costa Times endorses Assembly member Hector De La Torre (D-South Gate) and Assembly member Mike Villines (R-Clovis) in the primary for California insurance comissioner. According to the Times, both De La Torre and Villines are able to act independently of their parties. De La Torre would be less ideological than Democratic challenger Assembly member Dave Jones (Sacramento), the Times says, adding that Villines has more leadership skills and experience than his opponent, Brian Fitzgerald, who has 16 years of experience working in the Department of Insurance.
