CA: Bowen has Rival for Dem SoS Nomination

Ortiz files for secretary of state race

By Dan Smith -- Bee Capitol Bureau

State Sen. Deborah Ortiz on Thursday filed papers to launch her candidacy for secretary of state.

The Sacramento Democrat will face a Senate colleague, Debra Bowen, D-Marina del Rey, in the June 6 Democratic primary election. Secretary of State Bruce McPherson is not expected to have significant opposition in the Republican primary.

Ortiz, who turns 49 later this month, served two years in the Assembly and is in her eighth and final year in the Senate under the state's term limits law.

"It is critical that we restore confidence in our electoral system and convince voters that their voices do count," Ortiz said in a statement.

How nice of her to say. So why, in May '04, did she oppose OpScan and in favor of DRE's WITHOUT VVPAT? :shrug:
