Former state senator Lou Correa was the overwhelming choice of Democrats in the 46th for the DPOC party endorsement at a poorly-attended meeting at the Teamster’s Hall in Orange Saturday morning; 32 votes were cast.  Correa got 30.  There were two votes for no endorsement and Garden Grove Mayor and CD-46 candidate Bao Nguyen didn’t land…

Hillary’s Post Convention Bump Raises Her Prospects

First off, sorry for the spotty postings over the past week and a half; I’m back from a business trip/family vacation in Europe and the time to post/availability of WiFi factor has a significant impact on what I was able to do online.  Our trip took my family and I through Hungary, Austria and Italy…
