MERCED, Calif. - The office of Assemblywoman Anna Caballero was burglarized the day before elections.
Caballero is running for State Senate in the 2018 Midterm Elections.
Representatives from her campaign said that computers containing voter contact information, precinct maps, scheduling details and thousands of door hangers were stolen.
They also say that it was coordinated to limit contact with voters on election day.
"It's pretty clear that whoever did this intentionally is trying to limit our contact with our voters," said Ken Smith, coordinator for Caballero's campaign. "This was done by somebody who knew what they were doing. This was not a robbery, it was a political, dirty trick."
Caballero was elected to the state assembly in 2006 and re-elected in 2016.
As of 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Caballero has 50.5 percent of votes for State Senate while Poythress has 49.5 percent.
