Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell has launched into the race for LA County Sheriff with a list of banner endorsements. Despite inexperience running a political campaign, he begins boldly with support from LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, L.A.

County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, former L.A. County District Attorney Steve Cooley, and developer Rick Caruso. The other declared candidates in the race are Assistant Sheriff Todd Rogers; former Undersheriff Paul Tanaka; former Sheriff's Commander Bob Olmsted; former Sheriff's Lt. Pat Gomez and LAPD Sgt. Lou Vince. The primary is in June.
