Your guide to California’s Congressional District 3 race: Kermit Jones vs. Kevin Kiley.

Kermit Jones lives in the San Gabriel Valley, about an hour west of Los Angeles, in the sprawling city of Pasadena. The 32-year-old, who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, says he has an advantage in the contest between two Democrats vying to represent California’s 11th congressional district.
