You have a lot to choose from, though, with 27 candidates for Governor, 11 for Lieutenant Governor, eight for Secretary of State, and 32 for U-S Senator. Other races include Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, and Insurance Commissioner. Nevada County’s State Senator Ted Gaines is one of four candidates for a seat on the Board of Equalization, Congressman Doug LaMalfa faces six challengers in his re-election bid, and Brian Dahle is one of four candidates for State Assembly. There are also five statewide ballot propositions.
