The 80th Assembly District falls entirely within the boundaries of San Diego County. Lorena Gonzalez (D) is the incumbent in this race. Gonzalez won a special election in 2013 after the resignation of Ben Hueso.
This district shows the following party registration for the three largest political groups (the source is http://www.l2political.com):
Here are the result for the June 2018 race:
Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D)- 70.5%
Lincoln Pickard (R)- 29.5%
Joseph Viveiros (R) (Write-In)- 0.0% (3 Votes)
We saw a total of 54,559 ballots cast in the primary. Gonzalez easily won in November by a margin of 66.8% to 33.2%
With Gonzalez coming out as the face of AB 5 which attacks the gig economy (e.g. Uber, Lyft, etc…), I saw potential for a Dem challenger coming in and taking her seat. Only Republicans challenged her in the primary though. Here are the March 2020 results:
Lorena Gonzalez (D)- 72.7.7%
Lincoln Pickard (R)- 9.4%
John Vogel (R)- 17.9%
78,205 ballots were cast in this race. The increased turnout and lack of a challenger from the left (Note what happened to Tyler Diep).
If Vogel was a Democrat, I would bet that companies impacted by AB 5 would rally behind him. Since he is not, he will likely be left on his own. I predict that Lorena Gonzalez will win in November.
