Republican Steve Cooley Wins Attorney General Primary
With 24 precent of statewide precincts reporting, Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley has won the Republican nomination for California Attorney General, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The close, hard-hitting race is turning out to be a landslide for Cooley, a moderate Republican who faced conservatives Tom Harman and John Eastman. So far, the L.A. County prosecutor has received 50 percent of the vote, with Eastman grabbing 31 percent and Harman holding at 20 percent.
Cooley, who's serving his third term as the L.A. County D.A., will face San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, the winner of the Democratic primary, in the November general election.
