Jose Solorio said in an email to his supporters today that the reason he got spanked by Janet Nguyen in the Primary Election, in the race for the 34th State Senate District, was that he was focused on passing Prop 41, yet another expensive bond measure that will hurt California’s taxpayers.
I know for a fact that Solorio did not attack Nguyen in the Primary because he wanted her to advance to the General Election but now she has a mountain of momentum despite her corrupt ways.
I think Solorio should have unloaded on her. Worst case scenario he would have faced off against Long Pham in November. But Pham cannot raise the money that Nguyen can. She is by far the more dangerous opponent despite her crooked ways.
Here is Solorio’s emailed message:
Dear Friends and Supporters,
I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of our campaign journey this year. Both our Solorio for Senate and Vote for Vets campaigns have been high-visibility, positive and well-received.
We’re glad we won our top-two primary spot, but we’re especially excited that we helped Proposition 41 receive so many votes in Orange County with our Vote for Vets campaign. We dedicated our resources in June to support Proposition 41 and will now focus on winning again in November.
We’ve known from local and statewide history that Democratic turnout is always low in June. We look forward to running a robust campaign, using our 2 to 1 fundraising advantage over our opponent, to win in November when Democratic turnout will increase significantly.
Our current State Senator Lou Correa, and supporter of ours, has always shared his campaign war stories, including how Democratic voter registration is stronger today than when he won on Election Day in November eight years ago. Also, even for his re-election in 2010, he lost the June primary to Anaheim Councilwoman Lucille Kring, but went on to win the November general election by 30 percentage points.
Our path to another win in November begins today! Thank you for being a part of it.
