The Orange County Voter Registrar updated the Open Primary Election results tonight at 5 pm and the bad news for liberal union hack Julio Perez is that he is still over 500 votes behind Republican Jose “Joe” Moreno, who spent almost no money on his campaign. Perez spent thousands and also benefited from a multitude of independent expenditures spent on his behalf by unions.
It is becoming clear that Perez is going to lose as he is not making up any ground as the votes continue to be tallied. This is no surprise to those of us who remember when the unions unloaded on behalf of former SAUSD Trustee Nativo Lopez, when he was facing a recall. The union money failed then too as Lopez was indeed recalled.
I am hearing rumors that Perez’ allies in labor are going to try to run him for a Santa Ana City Council seat if in fact he does end up losing his race for the 69th Assembly District. He apparently carpetbagged in his Assembly race so I guess he is open to carpetbagging again for a Council seat.
