Then I heard an interview on NPR with the OC voter Registrar who said this was the highest turnout since 2002. And that there are still 100,000 votes to be counted. So the percentages could change.
At any rate, we certainly have our work cut out for us.
In the 45th Katie Porter prevailed. Brian Forde wrote a very gracious email and promised full support for Katie. On the other hand, I heard that David Min's supporters have said they would not vote for her. I haven't seen anything from David. This district looks like the least likely to flip. It's listed as "Leaning Republican". Mimi had 53% of the votes (so far) and that's not good for us. So we need to get new voters and get out the vote. If each of us find 5 Democrats who didn't vote in the Primary and they get 5 voters, etc., think what a difference that could make. Let's get to work.
The 48th opponent for Rohrabacher is still not decided. Rohrabacher got 30% of the vote (who are these people?!) and the 2 Democrats tied for the lead have a combined 34%. But the 2nd Republican (Baugh) pulled in 16% which is likely to go to Rohrabacher. The other Democrats were 10% so again, we need new voters. The district is listed as "toss-up". Let's get to work.
The 39th and 49th are in better positions. With no incumbents, they are both listed as "toss-ups". And the percentages look a little better. But still alot to do.
So let's take the summer to think about our strategy. And keep talking to your friends..
