California: Best of Three? Another look at the Senate race of ousted state Senator Josh Newman/Senator Ling Ling Chang

Another look at the recall rematch where former state Senator Josh Newman (D), who was kicked out in a recall in June 2018 with 58% against, will  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.
