California state senators feel impact of term limits
by Elizabeth Brownell
In November 1990, California became one of fourteen states that have enacted state legislative term limits. In 2010, the term limits will affect eight California state senators.
Democratic senators Dean Florez, Denise Moreno Ducheny, Gilbert Cedillo, and Gloria J. Romero, having served two four-year terms each, will be ineligible for the 2010 elections, as are Republican senators Dennis Hollingsworth, Jeff Denham, Roy Ashburn, and Samuel Aanestad.
Though the same number of Democratic senators as Republican senators will be losing their seats, the Democrats alreday have a 12-seat advantage in the state senate.
