There’s a new candidate in the race for California’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Television reporter and anchor Christina Pascucci is looking to fill the seat of the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
Pascucci spent more than a decade as a reporter and anchor at KTLA 5 before moving to KTTV Fox 11 last year.
The 38-year-old Democrat told Politico that she aims to be a moderate consensus builder and vows to appeal to Latino and undecided voters.
“I’ve been covering the most pressing issues of California for the past 15 years and watching this race closely, as well as covering it and interviewing some of the candidates,” Pascucci told the outlet. “And the more I watched it, the more closely I studied it, I honestly felt dismayed by how it was shaping up. I spoke to a lot of others who felt the same way. Like, this is our future — more of the same.”
