With Rep. Grace Napolitano’s decision this week to run in the 32nd district east of Los Angeles, fellow California Democratic Rep. Linda Sánchez announced Thursday that she will run in the newly drawn 38th district.

Until Thursday, Napolitano and Sánchez were caught in the Los Angeles logjam caused by the state’s independent redistricting commission, which redrew the state’s Congressional lines with no concern for incumbents. There will likely be three intraparty, Member-vs.-Member races in the Los Angeles area alone.

Napolitano and Sánchez both live in the 38th district, and Napolitano announced early on that she would run there while Sánchez remained publicly quiet about her intentions. But Napolitano changed her mind this week, saying she would run in the 32nd district because she “felt that it would be better to have two strong Latina Congresswomen representing the people of this area instead of just one.”

Had Napolitano not switched, Sánchez could have opted to run in the open 47th district ba. ed in Long Beach, which mostly lies outside her current district.
