Below are some of the videos presented by the Attorney General candidates at the CADEM2010 Convention on Sunday. Pedro Nava’s is my personal favorite of the three that I could find.

Congresswoman Jane Harman received about 86% of the votes from her district caucus for the CADem Party endorsement. Her primary challenger, Marcy Winograd managed to get enough signatures to challenge that endorsement on the convention floor. Long time OC Delegate Ray Cordova spoke in favor of local rule for party endorsement.
In the hottest contested race for Lt. Governor, neither candidate received the required 60% vote to get the party endorsement. Gavin Newsom received 52% of delegate vote. The CA Democratic Party will make no endorsement for Lt. Governor.
In aÂ format change from previous years, the candidates for Lt. Governor, Janice Hahn and Gavin Newson were permitted to submit one minute videos to address the CA Democratic Convention Delegates. Here is the video from Janice Hahn: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmCb1-nQJQI&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
The following memo went out from Janice Hahn’s campaign almost three hours before delegate voting closed for party endorsement. This looks a lot like Jimmy Carter conceding the 1980 Presidential Election to Ronald Reagan hours before the polls on the west coast closed.
