Plugging away

The race to be LA's mayor continues.
Mayor James Hahn is limping toward a May runoff with no clear path to a second term, mostly deserted by his fragile political coalition in one of the nation's most diverse cities.

Hahn squeaked into a rematch against city Councilman Antonio Villaraigosa with a paltry 24 percent of the vote in Tuesday's primary, having squandered his good will with the two constituencies credited with vaulting him into office four years ago: South Los Angeles blacks and the moderate-to-conservative voters in the San Fernando Valley.
