Description Rolph ran for the Republican and Democratic nominations. He lost the Republican nomination and won the Democratic nomination. However, under California's crossfiling law, he could not be the Democratic nominee after losing the primary of his main party.

Therefore, former Congressman Bell ran as an Independent in the general election.
