LOS ANGELES (AP) – California state Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez has pulled clear of a large field to clinch a spot in a June runoff for a seat in the U.S. House. Former Los Angeles planning commissioner Robert Lee Ahn is Gomez’s likely opponent after Tuesday’s voting in a field of 23 candidates. With about 21,000 votes counted, Gomez led Ahn 28 percent to 22 percent. Maria Cabildo, former director of homeless initiatives for Los Angeles County, was third with about 8 percent. All three are Democrats. A runoff between the two top vote-getters is required if no candidate gets 50 percent. Gomez and Ahn are seeking to replace Xavier Becerra the 34th District that falls mainly in Los Angeles. Becerra left to become the state’s attorney general.
