Bass closes in on Caruso in Los Angeles mayoral race

LOS ANGELES — Billionaire developer Rick Caruso’s lead over Rep. Karen Bass in the race for mayor of Los Angeles fell to less than 3,000 votes on Thursday, after county election officials released a small batch of results in a contest that was still too early to be called.

With an estimated 900,000 mail-in ballots still uncounted, the outcome of the most expensive mayoral race in the city’s history is still likely days or even weeks away.

The Los Angeles County Registrar of Electors said Thursday it had counted just over 134,000 ballots since its last Election Day update. Thursday’s release included just over 52,000 votes in the mayoral race as election workers scramble to confirm signatures on mail-in ballots.
