Good morning. TGIF.

The wife of Roger Hernandez — the Democratic Assemblyman from West Covina against whom she has successfully sought a temporary restraining order for domestic violence allegations — said in court Thursday she is worried that he’ll blame his poor showing in his congressional race on her and “try to retaliate,” reports the Los Angeles Times[1].   

In fact, Hernandez, who is currently in a tight race for a top-two finish, did blame the results on his wife, Susan Rubio, saying she played “a significant role,” according toThe San Gabriel Valley Tribune[2].

Hernandez is currently only 1,178 votes behind the second place finisher in the race to unseat Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Norwalk, who finished first in the primary with 51 percent of the vote. Hernandez is termed-out of the Assembly.
