Costa Mesa voters reject conservative Republican Jim Righeimer

He was supposed to be the heir apparent to Assemblyman Van Tran, but ultra-conservative Republican Jim Righeimer lost his campaign for the Costa Mesa City Council this week, even though I am sure he spent 10 times what I did in my Council race in Santa Ana.

Congratulations to Costa Mesa Councilwoman Katrina Foley, who just missed being the top vote getter.  She is now the one who has a chance to take the 68th Assembly District in a couple of years, not Righeimer!

The other winners in Costa Mesa included Gary Monahan and Eric Bever.
