Salud Carbajal

Santa Barbara County

From the moment Central Coast Congresswoman Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) announced her plans to retire at the end of this term, candidates looking to fill her spot began to announce their intentions to run.

The race for Rep. Lois Capps' 24th District congressional seat is likely to be an expensive one by the time we get to November 2016. The candidates are already showing rapidly growing contribution totals.

Assemblymember Das Williams

State Assemblymember Das Williams (D-Carpinteria) announced Monday that he's running for Santa Barbara County's First District Supervisor seat, come 2016.

Salud Carbajal currently holds the First District seat, but Carbajal is one of several candidates now running for Rep. Lois Capps (D-Santa Barbara) congressional office.

Term limits will keep Williams from running for a fourth Assembly term. He easily won re-election back in November with more than 58 percent of the vote.
