CA-44: Compton Mayor Aja Brown (D) “has announced she is ending her challenge to” Rep. Nanette Barragán (D) “because she is pregnant with her first child.”

Brown: “To date, one of my highest honors has been dedicating my time and life to serving my community. However, at this point in my life, my family commitments supersede my ability to expand my level of service.”

Barragan has lost her two major challengers. Actress Stacey Dash (R) “had filed to run, but announced March 30 she was ending her campaign, saying ‘the overall bitterness surrounding our political process, participating in the rigors of campaigning and holding elected office would be detrimental to the health and well being of my family.’” (Los Angeles Daily News)

NEW DIGS. “Orange County will remain a crucial piggy bank for the GOP, and with the” NRCC’s “new office space, Republicans plan to base some fundraising staff out of Irvine full-time, keeping them in closer proximity to the wallets they hope to empty.” (CNN)
