Progressive political candidates scored a number of victories in yesterday's primary, outdistancing centrists in several key contests. In the East Bay's 16th Assembly District race, Dublin Mayor Tim Sbranti, who was heavily backed by organized labor, defeated corporate Democrat Steve Glazer in the race for the top two spots. Sbranti will face off against Republican Catherine Baker in the November election.

In addition, liberal Democrat Mike Honda trounced centrist Ro Khanna in the 17th Congressional District race, 48.6 Percent to 27.1 percent. The two will square off in November.

And in the race for state Superintendent of schools, liberal Democrat Tom Torlakson easily outdistanced centrist Marshall Tuck, 46.9 percent to 28.6 percent. They also will face each other in November.
