Since the campaign began, Hahn has been quick to line up endorsements from state leaders, including the backing of six members of the state's congressional delegation and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D). A poll released this week by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee showed Bowen with a four-point lead in a two way race, but did not test Winograd. Hahn's campaign released its own internal poll showing the city councilwoman with a five point lead over Hahn in a six-candidate race, but didn't release the names of the candidates who were tested.
Allen Hoffenblum, publisher of the non-partisan California Target Book, predicted to Hotline On Call earlier this month that a three-way race would be best for Hahn.
"How far does Debra Bowen to go to get her out of the race, and can she?" said Hoffenblum.
