California: Best of Three? Ousted state Senator Josh Newman to run for against Senator Ling Ling Chang for third time

Looks like another recall rematch here former state Senator Josh Newman (D), who was kicked out in a recall in June 2018 with 58% against, made the November ballot to face Senator Ling Ling Chang (R), who was selected as Newman's replacement in the recall. This will be the third go-round for the two, as Newman beat Chang in 2016 by 2498 votes. (Chang did not technically run against Newman in the recall -- the vote was an up or down against Newman, with Chang selected in a same day replacement vote).

The recall was launched over a gas tax and the Republicans push to deprive Democrats of a 2/3rds supermajority in the Senate. The Democrats quickly recapture the supermajority in the fall elections.
