Who will lead the O.C. Vietnamese American voters?

I wonder which Vietnamese American politician is going to rule the roost in a few months here in Orange County?  Assemblyman Van Tran is in big trouble.  He angered many of his Republican supporters with his ridiculous campaign against Supervisor Janet Nguyen.  She has now beat three of his Trannies: Trung Nguyen, Dina Nguyen and Hoa Van Tran.  And another of his Trannies, San Jose Councilwoman Madison Nguyen, is facing a recall.  Clearly Tran’s empire is crumbling.

But several of his Trannies will be running in November.  Westminster Councilman Andy Quach will likely be running for Mayor of his city again.  And I believe that Truong “Tomahawk” Diep is running for the Westminster City Council.  Trannies Trung Nguyen and Paul Lucas are both running for the Garden Grove City Council.  Democrat Tram Linh Ho, whose father is a longtime Tran supporter, is also running for the Garden Grove City Council. 

And in the recent election a new Vietnamese leader emerged as Long Pham won a seat on the O.C. Board of Education.  Surely he will lead the “Phammies” into battle against the “Trannies” in future elections!

And where does all this leave Supervisor Nguyen?  She now is looking at eight years on the O.C. Board of Supervisors.  What will she run for in the future?  And will she start to put together her own team of “Jannies” to take on the “Trannies?”

Who knows?  I do know we will have fun covering all of this here at the Orange Juice!
