There are at now at least five people running for the State Assembly seat vacated by newly elected State Senator Brian Dahle. One of them is his wife, Megan Dahle. The other three Republicans in the race are gun store owner and former Redding Councilman Patrick Jones, Lassen County Republican Party Chair Joseph Turner and former Ted Gaines staffer Lane Rickard. The lone Democrat running for the seat is Elizabeth Betancourt, one of the organizers of Redding’s women’s march. The election is August 27th and, if nobody gets a majority of votes, the top two will compete on November 5th.
