Former KTLA and Fox LA reporter Christina Pascucci is running for a U.S. Senate seat in California, aiming to fill the seat of the late Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Pascucci has spent more a decade as a reporter and anchor, previously working at KTLA 5 and currently at KTTV Fox 11.
Behind the move: Pascucci, a registered Democrat, describes herself as a moderate consensus builder who will appeal to Latino and undecided voters.
- Pascucci expressed her dismay with the current state of the race, prompting her decision to run for office.
- She intends to bring her experience as a journalist to her legislative work, emphasizing her dedication to truth-seeking.
- Pascucci recently announced that she is 18 weeks pregnant, stating that her pregnancy played a role in her decision to run.
State of Play: The race for California’s U.S. Senate seat is becoming crowded, with former Los Angeles Dodgers player Steve Garvey, a Republican, also entering the race.
- Leading candidates in the polls are Democratic U.S. representatives Adam Schiff and Katie Porter, as well as Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee of Oakland.
Elsewhere: It is unclear if appointed Senator Laphonza Butler, currently occupying Feinstein’s seat, will also run. Butler was appointed by Governor Gavin Newsom to fill the seat until the election.
