    What it shows to me is that low information voters don’t show up for under publicized off cycle elections. That is why power should be devolved.

    Not really. Greuel is backed by DWP management and union. Garcetti himeself is back by a whole bunch of other unions. I personally didn’t bother voting in this round as the guy I voted for (Kevin James) didn’t make it to the run-off in the last round. And I sincerely don’t see much of a differences between these two.

    * Greul ran lots of TV ads showing Bill Clinton praising and endorsing her. I mistakenly assumed she would get alot more electoral mileage out of that.

    * A friend told me she attended a Greul event for African Americans, where Magic Johnson spoke and endorsed Greul. Apparently, in her remarks, Greul repeatedly called Magic a great “baseball” player. Even my friend — who’s not into sports — was flabbergasted.
