A new candidate enters race for State Senate

Friday, March 29, 2013

A new candidate has entered the race to fill Michael Rubio's vacated seat in the State Senate.

Republican John Estrada filed his nominating papers at the Fresno County Elections Office Friday.

Rubio was halfway through his four year term when he resigned in late February to take a job with Chevron. The election to fill the State Senate seat will be held May 21, 2013. If there's not a clear winner the runoff will be held in July.

So far, seven candidates are in the running:

Andy vidak

Alfredo benavidez

Leticia perez

Francisco ramirez jr.

Jerry armendariz

Arif mohammed

And now, john estrada.
