SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Sacramento County district attorney candidates Alana Mathews and Thien Ho have both spent years in advocacy and in front of law classrooms. 

They have also been victims of drive-by shootings and have prosecuted high-profile cases, like the Golden State Killer.

In the waning hours of their campaigns, FOX40’s Sonseeahray Tonsall takes a look at what may be some of the deciding factors.
