Assembly District 42 has been revised due to redistricting which includes all of the Morongo Basin, parts of Riverside County and San Bernardino County to include Yucaipa, Hemet and Oak Glen.  The Riverside cities include Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and La Quinta.  See map below:

This map was posted on Republican Chris Mann’s campaign website who was the first person to declare his candidacy for Assembly with an impressive list of endorsements until he mysteriously dropped out of the race and endorsed candidate Chad Mayes. Republican Scott Miller recently dropped out of the race for 42nd District.

  1. Interesting that Councilmen Jim Harris and Jay Corbin both have made monetary donations to Chad Mayes’ campaign.

    With the Cook Machine destroying the old San Bernardino County coalition a Lower desert Candidate could clean Mayes’ clock in the primary.

    If I were inclined to put money on a race like that I would bet on both the lead horses. Just to CYA.

    The way the district is cut up it looks as if the power is now in the Coachella Valley and not so much in the Redlands’ Suburbs and the Morongo basin.

    The lower desert has only one dog in the hunt. While the Morongo has two…. Hargrove has limited funds and a Democrat, but she is very well liked. She might well siphon off enough votes to put the Morongo Basin Vote in Question.

    I’m not so sure that Mayes’ “Jesus is on my side” mantra is going to sway many votes in the fiscal conservative / Socially Liberal Palm Springs- Palm Desert- Cat City area. I’ll bet the Jeandron guy has a better handle on that voting block.

    Just my two cents…

      “Socially liberal fiscal conservative.”

      Not bad Obrien; did you come up with that all by your lonesome?
