Here comes the rematch.

As expected, Former Congressman Joe Baca (D-Rialto) is making plans to challenge Gloria Negrete-McLeod (D-Chino).

Negrete-McLeod, unexpectedly ousted Baca from his 35th Congressional District seat last November. Now Baca wants to return the favor.

Billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg weighed into the fall contest with millions of dollars of his own money late in the election. A move that caught Baca by surprise.

Those dollars went against Baca, and was the sole primary factor in his election day loss.
