Papers Back Jones, Villines for Insurance Commissioner
In the Democratic primary race for California insurance commissioner, the Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle both endorse Assembly member Dave Jones (D-Sacramento) over fellow Assembly member Hector De la Torre (D-South Gate), though both papers acknowledge De la Torre is also a strong candidate. The papers also both endorse Assembly member Mike Villines (Clovis) as the Republican candidate for insurance commissioner.
