Orange County Election Results – Sanchez beats Tran

The O.C. Voter Registrar has posted the first returns, which largely reflect absentee voters.  Here are a few of the more interesting results:

  • Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez beat Van Tran, by 8 points.  The votes are still being counted, but it is over for the Trannies.
  • No problem for State Senator Lou Correa.  He easily beat Lucille Kring.
  • Same goes for Assemblyman Jose Solorio, who wiped the floor with Robert Hammond.
  • Melissa Fox and Beth Krom lost big.  No sense going over the numbers.
  • In Irvine, Jeff Lalloway and Larry Agran won.  Now they will have to find a way to work together.
  • In the 68th AD, Phu Nugyen lost to Allan Mansoor by 9,000 votes.
  • In Santa Ana, it is over for Alfredo Amezcua and his unhinged coalition.  Mayor Miguel Pulido won with almost half the vote.  Amezcua only got 25% of the vote – he spent perhaps 200K for just over 6,000 votes.  Ouch!
  • The other Santa Ana mayoral candidates are far behind, but Charles Hart edged out George Collins.  Who cares though.  They really weren’t a factor in this race.
  • Sal Tinajero won in Ward 6, with close to 52% of the vote.  Nam Pham got 26% of the vote.  Helen Martinez didn’t matter in this race.
  • In Anaheim, it looks like Kris Murray and Gail Eastman won.  John Leos came in third place.  The unions spent a fortune on Leos, to no avail.
  • In Brea the good news is Ron Garcia won.  So did Roy Moore, but fellow union shill Ric Clough lost to Brett Murdock.
  • In Fullerton, Bruce Whitaker beat Roland Chi!
  • And Rick Sandzimier lost in Mission Viejo!
  • In Huntington Beach, Joe Shaw and his Democratic ally, Connie Boardman, won.
  • In CAPO, Maddox and Winsten were recalled!  The good guys won, as John Alpay and Gary Pritchard will replace them.  Good riddance!  And Measure H passed too!
  • And in case you are wondering, in the SAUSD school board race John Palacio won and Audrey Yamagata-Noji is behind him.  Turnout was low.  But I spent less than a thousand and got over six thousand votes.  Let’s just say I spent a lot less per vote than Amezcua did for his 6,000 votes!  Thanks to all that supported me and voted for me.  I will run again in two years – and this time we will start early and run a major campaign.  And I will continue to run my www.fixthesausd.com blog in the interim.
