SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Summer Stephan and Genevieve Jones Wright are set to face off during the June 5 primary in a race that is receiving close attention. 

Stephan was appointed and currently serves as the San Diego County District Attorney. Genevieve Jones Wright currently serves as the Deputy Public Defender. 

The race took a controversial turn due to ads funded by billionaire George Soros that slam Stephan over rape kit testing. The ads have since been pulled. 

A recent poll shows Stephan leading Wright with by 20 percent. Thirty percent of voters say they remain undecided in the race. 

Whoever takes more than 50 percent of the vote will win the race on June 5 and either become or remain the District Attorney.
