Report: Candidate does not live in 16th district

Officials: Leticia Perez still valid candidate

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - She's one of the candidates running for Michael Rubio's former seat, but Leticia Perez has reportedly encountered an unusual problem with her candidacy.

According to reports, Perez doesn't live inside 16th State Senate District.

But, the Kern County Elections Office said she is still a valid candidate.

That's because her neighborhood was supposed to move to the district, but never did because of an error.

Ironically, it's the same problem Rubio ran into when he first ran for the same seat.
