LOS ANGELES — Johnny Nalbandian, a seafood industry baron and longtime supporter of President Donald Trump, is facing off against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA-28).
Schiff has represented the district in the House since 2013.
In the June 5 open primary, in which the top two vote-getters advance regardless of party, Schiff got 72.2 percent of the vote and Nalbandian got 22.2 percent. They will go head to head this fall.
Nalbandian was born in New Jersey and raised in California by his Armenian parents who hailed from Yerevan and Russia and immigrated to the US in 1944, fleeing Stalinist purges.
