The Orange County Young Democrats met last night and have announced their endorsements for the November 8 Primary Election:
- CD-46 – Lou Correa
- Santa Ana Unified School District – Bruce Bauer, Beatriz Mendoza, Dr. Alfonso Alvarez for Santa Ana School Board
- Santa Ana Ward 1 – Vincent Sarmiento
- Santa Ana Ward 3 – Jose Solorio
- Santa Ana Mayor – Benjamin Vazquez
- Irvine City Council – Farrah N. Khan, Melissa Fox
- Anaheim 1 – Leonard Lahtinen
- Anaheim 4 – Arturo Ferreras
Surprisingly they endorsed a liberal, Benjamin Vazquez, for Mayor of Santa Ana but chose a moderate, Jose Solorio, for Santa Ana’s Ward 3 (over Vazquez ally Ana Urzuz Alacraz, who actually is a young Democrat).
I was also surprised to see them go with Lou Correa over younger Democrat (and more liberal) Bao Nguyen in the 46th Congressional District.
