Nathan Hochman Officially Qualifies for November Runoff in L.A. County D.A. Race

Gascon Received Lowest Percent in a Primary of Any Incumbent D.A. in History

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, March 29, 2024 / — Nathan Hochman has officially qualified for the November runoff in the L.A. County District Attorney race against George Gascon, who received just 25.2% of the vote – a record low for an incumbent in a primary, according to the official vote totals certified today by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.

The results make Hochman a strong favorite to defeat Gascon in November. No incumbent Los Angeles County District Attorney has ever won re-election after receiving such a low percentage of the vote in a primary.

Hochman has significant momentum after finishing in first place among the 11 challengers, setting a fundraising record for the March 5 primary, and earning the recent endorsement of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys.

Hochman, a former federal prosecutor, U.S. Assistant Attorney General, President of the L.A. City Ethics Commission and criminal defense attorney, said he will strive every day as District Attorney to pursue justice, hold criminals accountable, and keep the public safe.
