Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar has been named one of “50 Politicos to watch 2013” by the Washington-based news organization, Politico.

In the annual feature, Politico details Aguilar’s 2012 election loss in the redrawn 31st Congressional District.

Aguilar led four Democrats in the primary election, but Republicans Gary Miller and Bob Dutton gained more votes in the top-two primary and advanced to the general election.

Less than five months after Miller was victorious in the November election, Aguilar was re-elected to the Redlands City Council.

Aguilar’s also announced plans to unseat Miller in 2014.
