A Pre-Endorsement Conference will be held for democratic candidates seeking the endorsement of the California Democratic Party on Saturday, January 21st. This is the first step in the pre-primary endorsement process for candidates running for state and federal legislative office representing Orange County districts.
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.
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.
