Republican legislative aide Dustin Call, a Davis resident, has filed papers to be a candidate in Assembly’s 4th District.
He joins Esparto farmer and retired U.S. Marine Corps reservist Charlie Schaupp as GOP candidates in the race to replace termed-out Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis.
Call, 28, works as an aide to Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Chino Hills, and attends UC Davis part-time as a senior political science major.
Call has worked on Republican gubernatorial, Assembly and congressional campaigns, according to an online profile. He served as campaign manager for Yolo County Supervisor Duane Chamberlain in 2012.
He and Schaupp face three Democrats: Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd, Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza and Davis Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk. The top two vote-getters in the June 3 primary will advance to the general election.
