It means the Plantation Owner group has one more vote to lobby for more Mexicans in the fields.

Perez was their worst nightmare, a Mexican from the Unions.

They both agree: California for Mexico, just a debate about what the wage rate will be.

6,000 vote difference?
No problem for dems, they will fight it and count the votes until the dem wins most likely.

I’m not familiar with the name Vidak, thought it was a drug of some sort...

I think it does. Son said this was extremely important. Enough that he went precinct walking and he lives in Nor Cal.

From what I see, the Dems will have 27 out of 40 seats, the bare minimum to still have the tax-super-majority.

There is also another vacancy, a contest for District 52 (a district that falls in L.A. & San Bernardino Counties), which looks like there will be a run-off between a Dem and a “No Party Preference” candidate (the lone Rep candidate in a nine-person race with 7 Dems garnered thus far 14.5%). I’m not familiar with those candidates.

There was precinct walking and phone banks calling from Ventura County (SO. CA).
Very good news - unless ‘they’ find some ‘lost’ ballots or something . . .
(hate to say you can almost count on it anywhere, these
days . . .)

Correction on previous post, the other contest is an assembly race. There is still another vacancy in the state senate. Unsure of the status of that seat.

They always find a box of lost ballots and they are always just enough to change the outcome.

Congratulations Senator Vidak!!!

‘Praying no ballots turn up in the trunk of a car!’

Do you think better ‘precinct watching’ can help prevent this???
Wait - I’m probably day-dreaming, or worse - - -

‘Not better precinct walking,_______’

Oops - check again - did say ‘watching,’ not ‘walking’ . . .
And agree - vote ID (bit of rhyming there). . .

As a Californian, this gives me hope that this state can be turned around. In another story I read, it was clear he was not pandering to the Latino vote promising them citizenship right away, rather legal status so they could do things like go to Mexico to bury a dead relative, etc.
