Democratic assemblyman Curren Price — who moved into West L.A.’s 26th State Senate District to run for the seat vacated by newly elected county supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas — was forced into a runoff last week after he fell short of a majority vote. Price is the darling of big business, labor, and the state’s well-heeled gambling tribes. San Diego County’s own Barona Band of Mission Indians contributed $2900 on March 19 and the same day gave another $10,000 to the Alliance for California’s Tomorrow, a political action committee backing Price. On March 24, the tribe gave another $2900 directly to Price’s campaign. He has long been a champion of the gambling tribes in their battle to resist state regulation and additional taxes.
