Both are important electoral positions for the East County community and both are open seats this election cycle.
The 36th Senate seat, which encompasses all of Eastern San Diego and a good portion of Riverside County as well, is open due to now Senator Dennis Hollingsworth (R-Murrieta) being term limited from office. The 77th Assembly seat, currently represented by Assemblyman Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), is opening up due to Anderson’s ambitions for the 36th Senate seat.
