In the 9 years I have known Van Tran, I have learned to expect the unexpected. I had thought that he had dropped his plan to run for Harman’s 35th district seat in 2012 when he filed to challenge Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.Â So much for assumptions.
This was posted this morning on the Little Saigon Inside blog this morning.
Apparently State Assemblyman Van Tran is planning to run for State Senate in 2012. This is a recently filing of Form 410 by Tran and and David Bauer (his treasurer) on 7/7/09.
Tran is a very calculated politician so it is not suprising that he is covering all of the bases just in case. Rumor since last Friday that Tran already raised $250,000 for his war chest against Sanchez and Pham.
So I guess Van is hedging his bets. I know I would if I were going to try a run at Loretta.
Like the rest of us, I think he must be expecting to lose.
