Republican advances to runoff in Calif. House race
Republican businessman Craig Huey on Thursday beat California Secretary of State Debra Bowen in a congressional race and will square off against Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn in a July runoff congressional race.
The win for Huey, a political newcomer with tea party backing, confounded expectations the runoff would be between Democrats Bowen and Hahn.
“While they were fighting it out, we were talking to the independents, the Democrats and the Republicans who are so upset about this economy,” Huey said. “The voters are getting it, even in California.”
COMMENT: I have never seen the likes of the quantity of campaign mail these folks left at my doorstep. Or in my mailbox. Money seems to win.
