We’ve already blogged the heck out of the Correa win, but as additional details come in it’s hard not to post them.
I just received an email from Orange County Democratic Chairman Frank Barbaro:
If you haven’t heard, Democrats in Orange County have more exciting news to celebrate. Last night, Lou Correa expanded his lead in the 34th State Senate District to 1,302 votes. With only a handful of ballots remaining, Lou’s opponent has conceded the race. Out of respect to every single voter, Lou is waiting to declare official victory until each ballot is counted.This success belongs to the countless numbers of you who voted for Lou, walked a precinct, volunteered on a phone bank, or made a donation. To folks from across the District, from Garden Grove to Stanton to Santa Ana, this was about earning support one person at a time, one neighborhood at a time.
Make no mistake: this race was won on Election Day by a dedicated group of volunteers who left no precinct behind. These were labor leaders, local activists, small business owners, young people, and many who had never worked on a campaign but believed in Lou and his positive vision for the District.
And I’d like to ask my Republican friends that prematurely claimed victory in this race to download the following image and use it as the background of your computer desktop:
