According to the Daily Caller, Rick Caruso is running for Los Angeles mayor as a Democrat, but three years ago was a registered Republican. He is the founder and CEO of an American real-estate company and was formerly the president of the Los Angeles Police Commission.
His platform is focused on reducing the city’s rampant crime problem. He’s polling at 24%, just ahead of California Representative Karen Bass, who have both pulled away from City Council Member Kevin de León.
