In San Francisco, two candidates for the California State Assembly have a lot in common: they’re both 44 years old, both Democrats, both Harvard educated lawyers, and both serve on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. They even share the same first name – David.

If David Campos wins, he’ll be the first Latino from San Francisco to hold the seat. If David Chiu wins, he’d be the first Asian American. In any other circumstances, they would be allies, but for this election they’re highlighting their differences. Emily Wilson reports.
