LGBT State Senator Ricardo Lara holds a more than 100,000 vote lead for California’s Insurance Commission over his opponent Steve Poizner.  Poizner was considered the front-runner in this race as he held the position from 2007-2011. If Lara secures a victory, he will be the first openly gay candidate to win statewide office in California.
