California Rep. Diane Watson (D-Calif) will retire…….

From The Hill.…..

Rep. Diane Watson (D-Calif.) is set to announce her retirement, according to Democratic sources.

Watson’s central Los Angeles district isn’t expected to be competitive in the general election, as it carries a distinct Democratic advantage as a majority-minority district. President Barack Obama won it 87-12 in 2008.

Rep. Ehlers to retire

Former California State Assembly Speaker Karen Bass is thought to be an early front-runner to replace Watson.

Watson, 76, has served in Congress since 2001. Prior to that, President Bill Clinton appointed her ambassador to Micronesia.

  2. Merlin, rumors are that SF District Attorney Kamala Harris (D) might run for San Francisco Mayor in 2011 to succeed Newsome if her bid for California State Attorney General falls short.

    I just cannot see Harris winning statewide because she’s too liberal for the State AG gig, 2.) if she’s the Democratic nominee, she’ll lose because of her stand against capital punishment, 3.) her disastrous handling of an illegal alien who killed a SF cop several years back.
