Judy Chu Running in the West

With redistricting shifting district boundaries, Judy Chu has announced she will run for the new West San Gabriel Valley district that will include Rosemead, San Gabriel, Temple City, San Marino, Monterey Park, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, and parts of South Pasadena and Pasadena. It's the most Asian-leaning of the area congressional districts, and would include her home in Monterey Park. It will not include her current district office, in El Monte.

This clears the way for Roger Hernandez, who has previously announced plans to run in a congressional district that would include West Covina. That district will be heavily Hispanic and Democratic.
