California's Secretary of State Debra Bowen is expected to announce her plans to run to replace departing US Rep. Jane Harman in the 36th District, says Politico. Harman recently shocked many by revealing she would step down to take a job "Bowen hails from Marina Del Rey, which is part of the district, and represented the area in the state Assembly and Senate from 1992 to 2006," noted the Sac Bee last week, when rumors of Bowen's interest in the bid first began to circulate. "She will be termed out of her job as the state elections chief in 2014."

Already making her intentions known is Los Angeles City Councilmember Janice Hahn, who threw her hat in the ring for Harman's post right away. Hahn received the endorsement of California Senator Dianne Feinstein Monday.
