For Immediate Press Release: June 24, 2016
Karina Onofre for CA State Assembly 74th District 2016
KARINA ONOFRE BEATS INCUMBENT BY ALMOST 4,000 VOTES IN THE PRIMARY FOR STATE ASSEMBLY 74TH DISTRICT
A miracle is happening in California’s 74th Assembly District – the Red beating heart of the Republican Party is becoming Blue! In its history, we have never had a woman nor a Democrat win the majority of votes in any election. But a huge shift is happening and Karina Onofre, a Democrat, has taken the lead with 46,073 votes (42.4%) of the votes vs. 42,311 votes (38.9%) -beating the incumbent by almost 4,000 votes! It is unprecedented. A miracle!
It is clear that there’s a lot of disappointed voters with the way the incumbent has been inefficient in Sacramento, ostracized himself and our district by being able to pass absolutely nothing. He could not even pass a Mother’s Day Resolution when he tried. He has two DUI’s and his radical extremist behavior of not being able to get along with anyone including members of his own party in Sacramento is hurting our district. Of all 80 districts, district 74 is one of the most educated and affluent districts in California and it deserves to be represented better.
It’s no surprise that Karina Onofre won it because with her history of hard work, two college degrees in Economics and Political Science, and proven track record of serving the community she is more than qualified for the job and people know they can count on her. Unlike the incumbent, she is a self made, successful small business owner and is not in this for the money. The community is her top priority and whether you’re Democrat or Republican, you will benefit from her being part of the majority in Sacramento because she will hit the ground running to get the job done -greatly serving her District.
Onofre expressed, “I am very humbled and feel so grateful to God and to everyone who voted for me who want their voice to be heard in Sacramento because I promise to take my job seriously and have an open door policy, listen to you directly, and represent you. I understand that I haven’t yet won anything and that we still have a lot of work ahead of us towards the general election in November, but I am also a strong believer that with focus, hard work and determination Victory is possible! It would be an honor to be the very first woman to represent our district ever in Sacramento! God Bless You. Thank you for voting Karina Onofre for CA State Assembly in the 74th District!”
