I’m actually delighted Rep. Loretta Sanchez will be debating State Rep. Van Tran on KOCE tomorrow.Â I believe she’ll bring some Mop-and-Glo with her and use him to polish the floor at the studios.Â
And while many of us expect Sanchez’s command of the issues to crush Tran’s Tea Party rhetoric and lack of accomplishments in the Assembly, let’s use the debates to put this race out of reach and send Tran back home to his parent’s house in the district.
There are several watch parties planned to catch the debate and gather to make signs for Sanchez’s upcoming rally with former President Bill Clinton in Santa Ana this Friday.Â The Sanchez campaign is hitting the phones and knocking on doors to get out the vote.Â
Here are details for the party at Sanchez HQ: The Committee to Re-Elect Loretta Sanchez will be holding a debate watching party for supporters and volunteers this Wednesday, October 13 from 6-8:00pm PST. Please join Team Sanchez as we watch the televised debate between Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez and Assemblyman Van Tran on KOCE, make signs for Fridayâ€™s rally with President Clinton, and phone bank voters. The event will be held at Rep. Sanchezâ€™s Anaheim Campaign Office, located at 1658 W. Lincoln Ave., Anaheim, CA 92802. Food and refreshments will be provided. Congresswoman Sanchez is expected to arrive between 6-7pm
For Latino voters in the district, if the Dream Act is crucial for you, a vote cast for Ceci Iglesias is a vote for Van Tran.Â Iglesias has no prayer of getting elected to Congress in spite of her support for the Dream Act.Â But Van Tran takes a vote away from this legislation in one of the strongest Latino districts in Congress.Â Sanchez is signed on as a sponsor and supporter of this legislation that gives undocumented children who are essentially American in every way and, through this legislation, gain a path towards citizenship.
