Today is Election Day, Children. The ladies of California’s 37th Congressional District-Laura Richardson, Jenny Oropeza, and Valerie McDonald face off against each other to see who will win the Democratic Primary and subsequently, this seat. Laura Richardson’s labor allies are involved in serious and well-funded member to member election contact on her behalf and the Indian Tribes are funding Oropeza’s voter contact program. Tonight we’ll see who’s been most effective.
Another wrinkle has been added in this race by the sharp elbow Richardson gave Oropeza for taking off and missing votes during her liver cancer treatment. Most folk think that was a low blow and yet another foot inserted into the mouth of the leading African American candidate in this race.
I will be pulling a late night tonight to blog as this race develops.
