From the Bay Area Reporter,
With the entrance Thursday of Board President David Chiu into the 2014 race for the 17th Assembly District seat, San Francisco voters in the city's eastside district will be confronted with choosing between two supervisors named David with law degrees from Harvard to send to Sacramento as their representative.
In August gay Supervisor David Campos, 42, became the first person to officially enter the race. The Bernal Heights resident has the backing of the incumbent, gay Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), and history on his side. The last three holders of the seat have all been out elected officials, and many consider it to be the local LGBT community's state legislative seat.
