State Senate: OC Supervisor Janet Nguyen wins in 34th Senate District

Janet Nguyen, who won her seat on the Orange County Board of Supervisors by seven votes, doesn’t have to worry about a lengthy recount this election.

The first generation Vietnamese-American immigrant, who withstood a barrage of negative attacks, has defeated former Assemblyman Jose Solorio by a twenty point margin for a seat in the California State Senate. With 99.1 percent of precincts reporting, as of 12:55 a.m., Nguyen had 70,438 votes in the race for the 34th Senate District, compared to 46,867 for Solorio, a trustee on the Rancho Santiago Community College District Board.

Nguyen, the youngest supervisor in Orange County’s history, is headed to Sacramento thanks to a strong turnout by Vietnamese-American voters. Asian turnout among absentee voters, according to data made available by Political Data, Inc., was up significantly in the district, where 80 percent of the district’s Asian voters are Vietnamese.

The race was considered to be one of the most competitive legislative races in the state. Surprisingly, Nguyen added to her vote total from the June 3rd primary, when she captured 52 percent of the vote in a three-way race.

    “Nguyen, the youngest supervisor in Orange County’s history, is headed to Sacramento thanks to a strong turnout by Vietnamese-American voters.”

    Do Vietnamese only vote for those of their own race? Isn’t that racist? Just asking. Imagine if a reporter wrote the following: “____________, a white candidate, is headed to Sacramento thanks to a strong turnout by white voters.” I bet he’d get banned from the journalism business! 😀

      I agree LIC, to point out the ethnicity of a winners voters is racist, even Obola was elected because of White voters choosing to enslave themselves to the RAGWUS. 🙂

        Yeah donkey. According to the media race it perfectly acceptable for asians to vote for asians, hispanics to vote for hispanics and blacks to vote for other blacks. IOW’s voting according to skin color. The race vote is constantly brought up by the media in these elections unless the candidate happens to be white. If you are white and vote for a white candidate because of his or her skin color – you’re automatically a racist. When is everyone in America going to be on a level playing field?

    Besides, Janet Nguyen is a loser. She was a complete failure as a supervisor in Orange County. Just goes to show that incompetence and ineptitude rises to the top in politics. Did you know that 6 of her donors admitted to illegally receiving reimbursements for campaign donations, according to the FPPC? heh. She has a long dirty laundry list associated with her name. Do your research.

      True, but I hope this does not mean you are a Solorio supporter?
      Just kidding!! 🙂

        No, Donkey. I hate Solario almost as much as I do Nguyen. The State Senate was just another typical choice between Frankenstein and Dracula. Regardless who was elected, the people lost. Scanning over the races, about 90% fell into that category. But Nguyen is a total loser. A real airhead. What a joke that she’s a State Senator now!!! God almighty.
        Btw, Donkey, congratulations to the Bruins. They are still in the running for the PAC-12 SOUTH title. Beat BOTH Arizona schools (both are ranked nationally too!) Very impressive. But UCLA has 3 TOUGH games ahead: Washington, USC and Stanford! Looking forward to great football in November and December! My Ducks are rolling right along. Unless they really screw up, a spot in playoffs (top 4 teams nationally) is a real possibility. Would love to see a PAC-12 team in the mix nationally this year versus all SEC. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. 😉

    Hey, what about that Young Kim – Quirk-Silva race for the Assembly! The pub Kim beat Quirk by 12 full percentage points! HAH! Good for her! Quirk had $2.2M in her campaign warchest while Kim only had $1.5M. SO THE BIG MONEY LOST FOR ONCE!!! GOOD! Jerry Clown was stumping for Quirk too. They let her author a bill on a vet cemetary, thinking it would win her some votes! Apparently the vets saw through the facade. Hopefully, this will be the end of Quirk’s political career and she’ll go back to teaching K-12 full time. I put her in the same loser class as Janet Nguyen. I wonder if Quirk will run for the Fullerton council again? I think that was the pinnacle of her political office talents. If a rhesus monkey spent $200,000 to get elected to the Fullerton council I betcha it would be the #1 vote getter!!! 😀

    Got to check with Ulysses. I heard before I got a job in the rental yard John Birch moved out of Fullerton to a rural Fallbrook compound.

    Who is Johm Birch?

      Oh God no! John Birch has simply reinvented himself after years of being beaten down. You even might mistake him for Chris Christie or even Rick Perry these days. Don’t be surprised if you find him sipping a latte at Starbucks in Downey! Over time everyone is malleable and capable of conforming to the mores of society. Heck, look at the mainstream GOP’ers or even the Pope! All scared of their own shadows. Willing to shun 2000 years of religious doctrine to appease the modern day progressives. When millenial institutions began to crumble and support the antithesis of what was preached by their founders you know the end is near! It’s not progress. It’s disintegration! 🙂
