Bustamante tanking in 4th place!

The early results are in…and it doesn’t look good for Carlos Bustamante. He is way back in the pack, behind the two Nguyens and Tom Umberg. These are the early absentee votes, so let’s see what happens as the night rolls on. I did receive a call from the Trung campaign saying that they are confident he is going to win. What do they know that we don’t?

I also heard from an Umberg insider that he thinks he is going to lose. I must agree with that sentiment.

Here are the numbers, from the O.C. Registrar of Voters website:

County Supervisor First District, Short Term
Completed Precincts: 0 of 179

TRUNG NGUYEN 8503 27.1%
JANET NGUYEN 8315 26.5%

KERMIT MARSH 1019 3.3%
LARRY PHAN 291 0.9%
LUPE MORENO 263 0.8%
BENNY DIAZ 160 0.5%
