We are just a few days away from the June 3rd primary in Los Angeles. For one last look at some of the bigger local races, we're joined by KPCC's political reporters Alice Walton and Frank Stoltze.

There are some big names in the race to replace Zev Yaroslovsky's seat on the L.A. County of Board Supervisors. We'll take a look at who they are. One thing we do know is they're all Democrats.

The big news going into last night's debate was that L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti endorsed John Duran for that seat on the Board of Supervisors. What can this do for his campaign?

There's also the race to succeed retiring Congressman Henry Waxman and the race to replace Lee Baca as Sheriff.  

It was reported that it former L.A. County Undersheriff Paul Tanaka has raised $900,000 for his sheriff's campaign. How is he using that money and what does this mean heading into Tuesday's primary?
