The Orange County Voter Registrar announced today that “We have finished all of our ballot counting and required audit functions from the June 5th Primary Election. Registrar of Voters, Neal Kelley, will certify the final results tomorrow following the preparation of the Statement of Votes. Our election results this evening indicate “unofficial” until we finalize tomorrow. We will be including write-in votes tomorrow as well.”
What does that mean? It means the ballot counting is basically done. And so is ultra-liberal union hack Julio Perez, who continues to lose in the race for the 69th Assembly District. Even better, he is barely losing, to Republican candidate Jose Moreno, who barely spent any money in the primary. Perez is about 250 votes behind Moreno, according to the updated June 14 results that were released tonight at 5 pm. I hope the final margin is even closer than that!
There is little doubt that Perez and his union allies will pay for a recount. Good. That way they can waste more union dues on the lame Perez campaign.
It looks like Moreno will face off against corporate Democrat Tom Daly in November. Moreno, a family man who lives in Anaheim, is a longtime employee of the County of Orange, and he is a dues-paying union member. Will labor get behind Moreno rather than support the awful anti-Latino and anti-working poor Daly?
The ballot counting will be finalized tomorrow. And we can but hope that Perez will be finished! Sending another job-killing, tax-raising liberal to Sacramento is exactly what California does not need!
