June 8, 5:30 pm Orange County Primary Election Update
- Ultra-liberal union hack Julio Perez is still losing in the 69th Assembly District. So far corporate Democrat Tom Daly and Republican Jose Moreno are in the Top Two. Perez is about 600 votes behind Moreno, who has over 5,700 votes.
- Joe Dovinh is still in third place in the 72nd A.D. race, by 245 votes. It looks like that race will feature two Republicans, Troy Edgar and Travis Allen, in November. Did Dovinh doom his campaign by advertising on the Liberal OC blog? Tea Party Democrat Albert Ayala has 8,492 votes. I warned Dovinh to run to the right… Continue reading
It looks like Santa Ana Council Member Michele Martinez won’t be advancing in the race to replace Jose Solorio in the 69th Assembly District. So far the top two in that race are Tom Daly, a Democrat, and Jose Moreno, a Republican. Martinez is in fourth and the candidate that Orange County labor backed, Julio Perez, is in third. If you are not in the top two, it is game over!
Had labor backed Martinez she might well have made the top two. Instead Democrats are now stuck with Daly, who has a distinctly anti-Latino record as the former Mayor of /Anaheim. Moreno also is from Anaheim, which means that Santa Ana no longer has a horse in this race, thanks to labor and Perez, not to mention that other foolish Democrat, Francisco Barragan, who hardly got any votes at all.

Decline to State voters in California may soon surpass the dwindling Republican Party. If you are a Decline to State or Independent voter, and you’re wondering who to vote for in the June 5 Open Primary Election, then look no further. As is my custom, I like to present my personal election picks – with my comments of course. We’ll start with the U.S. Congress:
U.S. Senate – I have never been a fan of Senator Dianne Feinsten, but the GOP has never been able to displace her. I suspect they will fail again this year, but I am going to endorse Elizabeth Emken and hope for the best. I like her focus on cutting government waste. And she is a parent of a child with autism – a subject she speaks about with authority. She is also a UCLA grad which I can appreciate as my oldest son is a freshman at UCLA this year.

It is simply amazing how much mail the Julio Perez campaign and his friends in labor are sending out – daily. I am receiving at least two pieces per day. It reminds me of the recall of former SAUSD Trustee Nativo Lopez. My mail box drowned in pro Lopez mail, because at the time my wife was working at Disney, at a union job.
Now I am the one in a union – a teacher’s union. So this time I am being targeted by the unions. And they are destined to fail again, as they did in the Lopez recall. Continue reading
The June 5 Open Primary is fast approaching and the new election rules migjht result in some interesting general elections, in November, featuring members of the same political party duking it out.
The O.C. Register’s Briane Calle wrote in a recent column that “In Orange County’s 74th Assembly District, Assemblyman Allan Mansoor and a fellow Republican, Newport Beach Councilwoman Leslie Daigle, could finish 1-2 on June 5, setting up a rematch in November. In that scenario, the third-place primary finisher, in this case Newport Beach businessman Bob Rush, a Democrat, would be eliminated and registered Democrats and others would be left to vote in November for one of the Republicans, ostensibly giving them the ability to swing the election (if they chose to vote).” Continue reading
