State House | District 64
The District 64 contest pitting Republicans James Grant, whose father was a longtime state lawmaker, against Miriam Steinberg, whose husband, Democrat Michael Steinberg, ran against Grant four years ago, will appear on the primary ballot — but may not count pending court action. A judge disqualified a write-in candidate who would have appeared on the November ballot, meaning that the election would need to be open to all eligible registered voters, not only Republicans. As of early this week, that was on appeal and could change. Elisabeth Parker, Times staff writer
