Lorri Galloway pops Tom Daly’s blue balloon as she announces for the 4th Supervisorial District

The race to replace termed out Supervisor Chris Norby just got interesting.  Anaheim Councilwoman Lorri Galloway, who is a Democrat, has announced that she is running, according to the Red Klownty blog and the Friends for Fullerton’s Future blog.

This is very bad news for O.C. Clerk-recorder Tom Daly, who like Galloway is also a Democrat.  Particularly since Jerbal, at Red Klownty, is also reporting that La Habra Councilwoman Rose Espinoza, who is also a Democrat, is thinking about running for Clerk-Recorder instead of running for the 4th Supervisorial District.

Daly is already being opposed by Anaheim Councilman Harry Sidhu.  Now Galloway will further dilute Daly’s base in Anaheim, where he was once the Mayor. 

Jerbal also reported that Norby is going to try once more to convince his fellow Supervisors to extend their terms to three terms.  Norby is getting desperate, I think.  He knows that Hugh Nguyen, his opponent for Clerk-Recorder, is the real deal.

Will Daly pull out of the race for the 4th and stay put as Clerk-Recorder?  Will Nguyen and Espinoza continue to vie for Daly’s office?  Will the Supervisors do Norby’s bidding and extend their term limits?  Do the voters have any say in that?

Don’t assume by the way that all the Democrats will welcome Galloway into the race for the 4th District.  She pissed off State Senator Lou Correa a few years ago when she endorsed his Republican opponent, Lynn Daucher.  Correa will never forget that slight, particularly since Galloway also bad-mouthed him.  But if Daly pulls out of the race for the 4th, and Espinoza does too, will Correa endorse Fullerton Councilman Shawn Nelson, who is the leading Republicanin the race to replace Norby?

So many questions.  So few answers.  But I am glad that Galloway is in the race as I don’t want Daly to win.

As for Sidhu, I guess he still has a few thousand to waste on another losing effort.  He blew a fortune last year losing to Mimi Walters as they vied for termed out State Senator Dick Ackerman’s seat.
