Former Assemblyman Jose Solorio, a Democrat who currently serves on the Rancho Santiago Community College District’s Board of Education,  formally announced his campaign for the 34th State Senate District seat that is currently held by Lou Correa.  The seat opens up in 2014.  Republican O.C. Supervisor Janet Nguyen, who screwed up CalOptima this year, has also announced that she is running for the 34th.

It is my understanding that failed Assembly candidate Julio Perez, who has never won any political office before, may enter the race for the 34th just to try to make Solorio lose.  Let’s hope labor figures out that Nguyen would be an even bigger nightmare as a State Senator than she already is as a County Supervisor.

Solorio sent out a campaign update today to his supporters – and from the sounds of it he is going to be tough to beat.  Let me be up front here – I have already made a decision to endorse Solorio.  Here is his campaign update:

Dear Friends,

A quick update regarding our Senate 2014 campaign. All positive news!

Thanks to the generosity of my supporters and hard work of my fundraising team, we now have over $400,000 cash-on-hand. Given that the election is in 2014, it provides us a very strong start. The 34th Senate District is open in 2014 because Senator Lou Correa terms out then.

As a result of several factors (e.g., Presidential election year, new online voter registration, and political trends in the county and state), the 34th Senate District now has a 2% Democratic voter registration edge over Republicans, and that figure will continue to rise.

In addition to continuing to spend substantial time in the cities I’ve represented in the State Assembly (i.e., Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Santa Ana), I’ve been able to develop many new relationships in the communities that I haven’t represented and are now also part of the 34th Senate District (i.e., Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, Seal Beach, Westminster and part of Long Beach).

This Senate election will be one of the most competitive in 2014, so I am very thankful for all the endorsements and gestures of support that I have received so far. If you’d like to help the campaign, please email me at or call me at (714) 514-6233.

Onward to Victory,

Jose Solorio
Community College Trustee
State Assemblyman Emeritus

    1. Sigh. By now you must know my writing style – which differs greatly from this carpetbagger person.

      And his knowledge of past Santa Ana history is far greater than mine – which means he is likely at least 10 to 15 years older than I am.

      But if you want to delude yourself go ahead Stanley.

      1. Let me this to be clear once for all!

        1) Way back I have made post about you rating on Jennifer Villasenor’s brother……. clear?

        2) Because you didn’t liked the truth about your rating on people’s family members relatives, including Jennifer Villasenor’s, you have not posted that comment……. clear?

        3) No one else mentioned Jennifer Villasenor in any other comment…… clear?

        4) Immediately, within an hour, “carpetbagger” commented on Jennifer Villasenor’s brother saying “I remember(…)”….. clear?

        5) There is no way how “carpetbagger” could known that Jennifer Villasenor’s brother was the subject of the discussion unless you told him…… clear?

        6) Since you have never admitted that you had any email discussion with “carpetbagger” then you are him…… clear?

        7) You can run and lie but you can’t hide because, like every liar, you do not remember your own lies, not even for an hour….. clear!


        1. Alright Fiala. I just set you up with an editor account so you can see the comments and the IP addresses for yourself.

          I am trusting that you will not do anything nefarious.

          Go ahead and have a look for yourself. I am not lying. Carpetbagger is not me.

          This account status will last through tomorrow. Enjoy!

          1. No need to do that.
            The case is closed and when I come back from the walk I will make post with 10, or as many you want, IP addresses.

          2. I can do that too. But I don’t. You’ll see. There are at most three or four IPs that I use. The most frequent are my cell phone and my home IP.

            There are many who attack me while using fake IPs. I don’t play that game.

  1. And here I thought he was dedicated to helping Community College students! Jose is well loved by all the residents in Santa Ana I’m sure he will win this race but we will miss him on the college board. Will Mark McLaughlin be appointed to fill his seat when he wins? How does that work?

    Do you think that by wrapping himself in the Rainbow flag at the Tet parade he has a lock on the homosexual/transexual/transgender vote? How many votes is that?

  2. test IP #11 it look like #1 did not show.
    I can use hundreds IP from all countries in the world with 3 different anonymity levels.

    So do not us the IP as an alibi.

    Only Facts as I have listed.
