Pity the poor Orange County Democrats. They lost two local legislative seats in the November General Election – and the liberal Democrats in Huntington Beach and in Irvine got the boot as well. But the Democratic Club of West Orange County is moving forward with a holiday dinner on Sunday, December 7, 2014, at 5 pm, at the Claim Jumper Restaurant Banquet Room, at 18050 Brookhurst Street, in Fountain Valley.
And get this – their keynote speaker will be Jose Solorio – who just got his head handed to him by Janet Nguyen in the race for the 34th State Senate District. Solorio is apparently going to talk about “lessons learned in 2014.” I think the lesson he learned was not to hire Sacramento consultant Richie Ross again!
