Former Assemblyman Marco Firebaugh of Whittier was expected to be a third Democratic candidate but he died in March. Firebaugh’s supporters split between Bermudez and Calderon. The race was expensive. Bermudez outspent Calderon, $767,272 to $691,903. The corrections officers union and attorneys groups spent about $677,000 on behalf of Bermudez, while business groups provided Calderon with $738,000. Assemblyman Ron Calderon led Assemblyman Rudy Bermudez by fewer than 400 votes Tuesday night in the hotly contested 30th state Senate District Democratic primary. But Calderon’s 20,257-19,863 margin might be close enough that it could change. There still remain uncounted absentee and provisional ballots. The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s Office has the month of June to finish counting the ballots. Bermudez, D-Norwalk, and Calderon, D-Montebello, each gave up their own seats two years before they were termed out to run for the seat being vacated by termed-out Sen. Martha Escutia, D-Norwalk. The winner will face Republican Selma Minerd of Whittier.
