ELECTION 2020: David Couch and Emilio Huerta face off in hotly-contested Fourth District race

After winning with just 43 percent of the vote in 2018, Supervisor David Couch will attempt to hold on to his seat when facing attorney Emilio Huerta in March.

This will be Couch’s second election in less than a year and a half. He was forced to run for reelection early, after the Fourth District was redrawn following a successful lawsuit by the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund in which a judge found the county’s district boundaries violated the U.S. Voting Rights Act by splitting the Latino vote.
