Things heating up in CD 6 race - Cardenas facing depleting support
If all you factor is money, Tony should walk away with this one but their is something to be said for a City Councilman who has managed to rack up 5 challengers, many from the Neighborhood Council who meets down the street from his field office. There is a disconnect that extends beyond the ambitions of a few individuals and the loss of the EAA endorsement is a blow to the traditionally union backed Cardenas.
Less then a day after the EAA announced its endorsement of Lisa Palmer, CD 6 candidate Jaime Corderos' campaign took on new life, in the way of paid staff. Cordero has hired a campaign manager, Marc Victoria of AV Campaigns a D.C. based firm that specializes in "underdog" candidates. Victoria is in no way a Parke Skelton, but his firm has worked on many campaigns including a few congressional races that swept the Democrats into victory in 2006.
We'll have to see how this all shakes out but one release that has gone out already demonstrates that Cordero if gunning straight for Cardenes... It defines Cardenes as "Phony Tony, the invisible Councilman." Ouch.
Let the games commence.
