The dynamic of the Los Angeles mayoral race will shift dramatically from a five candidate primary to a two candidate dead heat. Once the field is narrowed, what must the two candidates do to convince the voters to elect them the next mayor of Los Angeles? What do the primary results mean, and what campaign strategies will the candidates use? How will the candidates' run-off campaign strategies differ from their primary campaigns?
