State Sen. Is­ad­ore Hall III (D) re­leased the first TV ad of the race for re­tir­ing Rep. Janice Hahn’s (D) seat, air­ing a bio­graph­ic­al spot that de­tails his back­ground.

“When I was 8, I was told I wouldn’t amount to any­thing. People said worse about where I grew up,” Hall says, as the cam­era shows a street sign for Compton Boulevard. “I wanted to prove them wrong. My moth­er showed me how. She worked three jobs to sup­port six kids, and we beat the odds, thanks to her.” Hall then touts his work as a “re­serve sher­iff, school board pres­id­ent, and city coun­cil­man.” (re­lease)

Her­mosa Beach City Coun­cil­wo­man Nanette Bar­ragan (D) said she is con­sid­er­ing en­ter­ing the race for Hahn’s seat, even though Hahn has already en­dorsed Hall. (Easy Read­er News)
