Rick Caruso and Karen Bass will face off in November for the L.A. Mayor’s race.
Caruso received 42 percent of the vote while Bass received 37 percent in Tuesday’s primary election.
You know who wins come November? USC.
In the end, isn’t that how it always works in politics? The most powerful always come out ahead.
Caruso and Bass both have strong ties to USC. Caruso obviously has been the most powerful figure at USC since Max Nikias was ousted and has been involved in every major decision, including that $7.6 million exit package Nikias received.
Bass got a $95,000 scholarship from USC for a master’s degree from the USC School of Social Work and was the USC Commencement speaker in 2019.
Caruso wins. USC wins.
Bass wins. USC wins.
