CA-32 and LA Local Elections Results Thread

by: David Dayen

Tue May 19, 2009 at 22:09:27 PM PDT


I threw the rest below the fold.  Here's the latest update with 65% reporting in CA-32:

JUDY CHU DEM 11832 33.31
GIL CEDILLO DEM 8800 24.78
EMANUEL PLEITEZ DEM 5042 14.2
BETTY CHU REP 3518 9.91
TERESA HERNANDEZ REP 2684 7.56
DAVID A TRUAX REP 1716 4.83

Though the lead continues to shrink, I don't think Cedillo can make up 3,000 votes with what's left out there.  Judy just declared victory, I'm told.

UPDATE More votes in, and Chu upped her lead to 3,300 votes with 75% in.  It's over.  Congratulations to Judy Chu.

...In other races, Carmen Trutanich is going to win the City Attorney's race.  He's up 54-46, by over 13,000 votes with 55% of the vote in, and he's been gaining with each update.  What a terrible race run by Weiss.

As for Council District 5, it's Paul Koretz 53-47 over David Vahedi, though the spread is just 1,200 votes with 40% in.  That's not quite over.

Update from CA-32, 15.77% reporting:

JUDY CHU         DEM 7066   40.39
GIL CEDILLO DEM   3321 18.98
BETTY CHU       REP 2125   12.15
EMANUEL PLEITEZ DEM 1619    9.25
TERESA HERNANDEZ REP 1356    7.75
DAVID A TRUAX REP   1087     6.21

Those are slightly softer numbers for Chu, but she has quite a cushion.  If vote by mail is 50% of the vote, which is what it looks like, there's no way Cediloo can catch her.

SD-26: Price is up to around 70% of the vote.

City Attorney, with 15.5% in:

C "NUCH" TRUTANICH 45075 51.62
JACK WEISS 42245 48.38

Going to be tough for Weiss.

UPDATE Starting to come in over in CA-32 now. 32% reporting:

JUDY CHU DEM 8635 37.69
GIL CEDILLO DEM 4837 21.11
BETTY CHU REP 2608 11.38
EMANUEL PLEITEZ DEM 2462 10.75
TERESA HERNANDEZ REP 1766 7.71
DAVID A TRUAX REP 1335 5.83

Doesn't look like there will be enough votes left for Cedillo.  Judy Chu is likely headed into a runoff with Betty Chu.  Chu-Chu.  Um. Chu.

...City Attorney update, 22.3% in:

C "NUCH" TRUTANICH 49684 51.66
JACK WEISS 46499 48.34

I think Trutanich is going to take this.  Simply an embarrassing loss for Villraigosa, if this holds.

UPDATE: Tightening up a bit in CA-32. 45.95% in:

JUDY CHU DEM 9756 35
GIL CEDILLO DEM 6407 22.98
EMANUEL PLEITEZ DEM 3436 12.33
BETTY CHU REP 2986 10.71
TERESA HERNANDEZ REP 2189 7.85
DAVID A TRUAX REP 1563 5.61

Still a 3,300 vote lead for Chu, but it is tightening.

...City Attorney, 31% in:

C "NUCH" TRUTANICH 58592 52.52
JACK WEISS 52966 47.48

And the 5th Council District, 14% in:

PAUL KORETZ 6987 53.03
DAVID T VAHEDI 6188 46.97

Judy now down to 38% (0.00 / 0)
with 32% in

but her lead over Cedillo (5.00 / 1)
in raw votes actually increased.  This one's pretty much over.  Great job Judy!

Now at 65% in, and 3,000 vote lead still holding (5.00 / 1)
this is over.  Judy Chu's got this in the bag.  

Top Republican vote getter Betty Chu, even with the benefit of some voters mistakenly voting for Judy, is below 10%.

Judy Wins!!!! (5.00 / 1)
I'm psyched that someone as progressive as Judy Chu will be representing LA County in Congress...

Too bad about Weiss--how awful is Trutanich anyway? How much of a mess did Delgadillo make? Besides mayor, how important are the citywide races in the long term, anyway?

What a shame they couldn't have had an Intant Runoff Voting (5.00 / 1)
election to avoid the absolutely pointless runoff election.

moorpark city council race too close to call (0.00 / 0)
fortunately, both Dems Pollock and Sweet (my preference) are in the lead over Chamber of Commerce Repub Bagwell.  Results

and the results are final (0.00 / 0)
see them here:

Democrat Pollock:
NATHAN SWEET (D) 1,527   28.25%
DAVID POLLOCK (D) 1,899 35.13%
DAVID K. BAGWELL (R) 1,137 21.04%

Good show for Nathan, and he'll have a year to make connections and try again when two seats are open instead of only one.

This was supposed to be a race between Pollock and Bagwell, with Bagwell the favorite.

LA City Attorney (5.00 / 1)
Tru is now in a position to win and win big. Gap is now up to almost 10K votes and has only been expanding.

Perhaps now is the time to consider the wisdom of a message devoid of policy, especially when your policy positions fall in line with those of the majority of the electorate? Somehow, I doubt that Weiss and Ace Smith will ever comprehend that point.


You're gonna love it... (5.00 / 1)
when Tru "decides" not to prosecute any of the polluters.

Just to sum up (5.00 / 3)
The entire statewide special election amounts to a millions of dollars spent so Maldonado could impose an arbitrary salary control on legislators?

term limit extension redux n/t (0.00 / 0)
