It’s challenging enough to knock off an entrenched member of Congress in a primary contest. But state Sen. Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga, probably didn’t count on the fact that he would also be picking a fight with nearly a million Realtors.
Dutton is running against a fellow Republican, Rep. Gary Miller, a 14-year incumbent, and four Democrats in the newly redrawn 31st Congressional District in the June 5 primary. If no one receives a majority of votes, the top two finishers – no matter what party – will face off in November.
