SAN BERNARDINO • With Assemblyman Anthony Adams bowing out of a bid for re-election in June, several candidates have emerged hoping to claim his seat in the 59th District Assembly.

• Ken Hunter, Republican, Lake Arrowhead real estate broker.
• Christopher Lancaster, Republican, advertising executive for San Gabriel Valley Tribune and former Covina mayor.
• Michael Rogers, Republican, San Dimas high school teacher.
• Anthony “Tony” Tyler, Libertarian, of Apple Valley.
• Donald E. Williamson, Democrat, former San Bernardino County Assessor from Highland.
