ABOUT THIS RACE
Gascon and Rossi have portrayed Lacey as a traditional tough-on-crime prosecutor who is too resistant to modern reforms. Lacey has insisted she’s a “reasonable reformer” committed to diverting people with mental health problems away from jail while championing crime victims.
The race has attracted national attention; a progressive tide has swept reformists into office in DA races across the country, and L.A. County -- home to the largest prosecutor’s office in the U.S. -- is the biggest prize so far.
