A Runoff Is Becoming A Possibility In LA's DA Race
There are still a lot of votes left to count, but it’s looking like the race for Los Angeles County District Attorney could be headed for a runoff.
An updated vote count today has incumbent DA Jackie Lacey still far ahead of her two challengers, with more than 49% of the vote.
But Lacey has now fallen 12,226 votes short of the magic 50%-plus-one that she needs to avoid a November runoff.
If things do end up in a runoff, Lacey will more than likely face former San Francisco DA George Gascon. He’s in second place with nearly 28% of the vote.
Former public defender Rachel Rossi is in third with nearly 23%.
Lacey’s share of the vote has slowly slipped in nearly each update since election night on March 3.
There are some 219,000 votes still left to count, so Lacey still has a mathematical chance of winning an outright majority.
Here are the numbers as of Friday:
