Phone banks, door knocking and canvassing will become more prominent as election day nears and mail in ballots start to arrive. Also expect social media to heat up!
Here's a look at the campaign trail from the last week.
Karen Bass and Rick Caruso, the two candidates vying to represent Los Angeles as its next mayor clashed in a feisty LA mayoral debate this week.
Caruso took a definitive stance on the DACA issue and the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decision. He announced steps he would take to protect Dreamers. Bass continued to tout womens’ rights as her big issue.
Hydee Feldstein- Soto won several endorsements: John Erickson, West Hollywood Council member as well as PPAP La County Action Fund, an arm of Planned Parenthood, the HonorPAC, a Latina LGBTQ organization, Los Angeles Sentinel and the Stonewall Young Democrats
Faisal Gill rolled out an ad claiming Feldsten-Soto will turn a blind eye to corruption in City Hall.
Lindsey Horvath picked up endorsement of Topanga New Times, former Malibu mayors Laura Rosenthal and John Sibert
She also picked up the criticism of the Sheriff as part of her campaigning and used Measure A, the ballot measure that would give BOS oversight and removal powers over the Sheriff, in debates.
Hertzberg came out against building subway tunnels under Bel-Air as a part of the Sepulveda Pass project.
Traci Park and city controller Ron Galperin went canvassing over the weekend. Park was endorsed by Emily’s List as well as former CD11 candidates Jim Murez and Mat Smith.
Erin Darling was endorsed by Marianne Williamson, the former Presidential candidate and spiritualist writer.
LA City Firefighters and Paramedics are running pro-Park videos.
On social media, the two candidates’ supporters continued to argue over destroyed or stolen lawn signs.
Darling addressed the canal fire through a tweet. He misspelled the name of the canal, which created two days worth of criticism of the mistake and the fact he didn’t visit the site of the fire.

Luna is claiming endorsement from all sheriff candidates from this past primary as well as Mike Gipson, Assembly member 64, Sydney Klamanger, State Senator, Councilmember Paul Krekorian, Reggie Jones-Sawyer.
