Democrats still divided over Burbank vs. Carlyle

The blue and yellow campaign signs are everywhere in the neighborhood. Democrats John Burbank and Reuven Carlyle are vying for the state representative seat in the 36th district in a highly-competitive race. Last night, a meeting of voting Democrats was unable to reach a consensus on endorsing one of the candidates, reports the PI. With the state’s top-two primary a month away, both Burbank and Carlyle will likely make the cut and head into November, spending as much as a combined $500,000 along the way — an unprecedented figure for a state house race.
