First Cousin John finds a Political Shock of Support among the mostly Southern California tally of votes to take a Second Place lead by 342 votes over Betty Yee.
A moment of positive unity for "First Cousin John" as he moves into Second Place (for now).
First Cousin John for Controller, are you still with us?
An influx of uncounted Southern California votes sends a shock of political life into the hopes of First Cousin John of making the November Runoff.
Its 5:40 P.M. as the Los Angeles Kings take an early 1-0 lead against the New York Rangers, "The Tony Villar's First Cousin John (Perez) for Controller Campaign" is looking for its political version of the "Miracle on Manchester" among uncounted Southern California votes ......, and after today's tally, there is a small hope. For this weekend, First Cousin John is in Second Place by a mere 324 ballots. As of now the tally of votes is
Ashley Swearengin, 979,119 votes
First Cousin John, 852,243 votes
Betty Yee, 851,921 votes
David Evans, 826,404 votes
The big concern now for "The Tony Villar's First Cousin John (Perez) for Controller Campaign is that most, if not all Southern California outstanding votes (especially LA County) have been counted, leaving mostly No Cal Counties (and Betty Yee supporting), to be tabulated.
Despite today's brief shock of political life for First Cousin John, his Canoga Park staffer and supported replacement candidate in the Assembly, Miguel Santiago (and his carpetbag-hauling Special Interest Burro) cannot smile, knowing that his boss may politically, flat-line again next week.
