Gavin Newsom

The 2014 California lieutenant gubernatorial election will be held on November 4, 2014, to elect the Lieutenant Governor of California. Incumbent Democratic Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom is running for re-election to a second term in office.

A primary election will be held on June 3, 2014. Under California's nonpartisan blanket primary law, all candidates will appear on the same ballot, regardless of party. In the primary, voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of their party affiliation. The top two finishers — regardless of party — advance to the general election in November, even if a candidate manages to receive a majority of the votes cast in the primary election. Louisiana and Washington are the only other states with this system, a so-called "jungle primary".
