Chris Nguyen, over at the Republican OC Political blog, spent a lot of time breaking down the vote in the 69th Assembly District, in the June 5 primary. It turns out that corporate Democrat Tom Daly won in Anaheim and in Santa Ana, which is no surprise as he spent a fortune and his friends in Sacramento and Anaheim spent even more.
Daly also benefited from being the only white candidate in a pool of Latino candidates. But the other story of note is that liberal union hack Julio Perez, who grew up in Anaheim, completely failed in that city. Republican candidate Jose Moreno, who barely ran a campaign, totally whacked Perez in Anaheim.
Moreno also took enough votes from Perez in Santa Ana to deny him an opportunity to advance to the November general election.
Santa Ana Council Member Michele Martinez did poorly in Anaheim, Orange and Garden Grove. But she also got beat in Santa Ana, where she only did OK in the center of the city.
That is not suprising as Perez attacked Martinez without mercy. She really didn’t fire back, nor did she go after Daly. In fact none of the candidates went after Daly. They should have.
