California: Cecilia Iglesias Turns Loretta Sanchez / Van Tran Race into a Toss-Up

Cecilia Iglesias has never run for office before – not even a schoolyard campaign for class president. Yet her presence on the ballot this fall has changed the equation in the tightest Congressional race central Orange County has seen in years. She has only pennies to the big dollars put up by her heavyweight opponents, Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez and Republican Assemblyman Van Tran. But in a race that will likely be decided by only a few percentage points, every vote she wins costs one of them dearly.
