The race for District Attorney hasn't received much attention this election season, even though the office wields enormous power over the Los Angeles County criminal justice system.  

KPCC's Frank Stoltze says the contest features a woman who would be the first female and first African American DA, against a star prosecutor who's handled some of L.A.'s highest profile cases.
