Los Angeles voters are preparing for Tuesday's first election, 

The New York Times claiming that Rick Caruso is leading the run for mayor. 

The billionaire and former Republican turned Democrat just before announcing his candidacy. 

Caruso has already invested more than $ 34 million in his campaign 

and vows to keep the legal and orderly agenda if elected. 

The New York Times claims to have portrayed LA as a rotten city, at a time when

the epidemic has shed some light on long-term issues such as housing and crime.
