72nd Assembly Watch: Final Candidates List

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Art Pedroza over at the Orange Juice blog has written a piece about the candidates in the Special Election Primary to fill the vacancy left by Repuglican darling and now disgraced Mike Duvall. Read about it here.  

Art notes that in the absence of a Libertarian candidate Norby should be picking up some votes from that quarter. Well that’ll be about 8 votes.

Pretty soon we’re going to be getting a flood of election mail and it ain’t gonna be pretty, soon.

  1. “Family Values” California state assemblyman representing Orange County, Republican Michael D. Duvall, resigns for apparently not cheating on his wife with a lobbyist or two. Well you have to take his word for it, or maybe believe that hypocrisy has been bred in. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. He is just another name that can be added to the list of “Republican 2009 Summer of Love”: Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), SC Board of Ed Chair, Kristin Maguire (AKA Bridget Keeney). But let’s get back to the real problem of political corruption, does anyone think this will get investigated and that things he voted on will need to be affirmed by the remaining members or will nothing happen? Do I hear Tammy Wynette, “Stand By Your Man” playing in the background? I remember not so long ago that other Orange County song favorite, “Stand By Your Tan” (for Tan Nguyen). But that’s another Orange County fool.

  2. Don’t scoff at those eight votes! Isn’t that about the margin of victory that separated Janet Nguyen from Trung Nguyen when she won her Supervisorial race a few years back?

    Fullerton is a college town. I am sure that there are a lot of Libertarian leaning folks around town. Hopefully they will all be sober enough to vote for Norby on election day!
