With more than two years left of his four-year term, Sen. Bill Emmerson, R-Redlands, unexpectedly resigned in December, citing a lack of passion for the job and his frustration with Sacramento. An orthodontist, Emmerson eventually took a job coordinating lobbying for the California Hospital Association. Seeking to finish Emmerson’s term are two Democrats, two Republicans and a Libertarian.
