Election Digest – July 12, 2011
After a hiatus for July 5th, which falls too close to our independence day for many elections to be held (excluding the NH primary with results that I have listed below), we have quite the crazy Tuesday chock full of fun elections. From the beginning of the recall season in Wisconsin (Democratic primaries between Republicans who planted themselves in the race to delay the process) to a Congressional race in California where Democrats hope that the district’s clear blue lean results in an easy victory and not in complacency and a shocking defeat, there are plenty of headlines. But we have lots of local races too…read all about it here.
Hudson Hallum (D) – 51%
D’James Rogers (I) -28%
John Geelan (R) – 21%
House District 54 (West Memphis) (more information)
Democrats will be trying to hold onto this seat in the north-east corner of the state when voters pick between Democrat Hudson Hallum, Republican John Geelan and independent D’James Rogers.
Janice Hahn (D) – 55%
Craig Huey (R) – 45%
After Democrat Jane Harman resigned from this Los Angeles area district to take a position at Princeton University, most assumed that it would be an easy race to hold for Democrats. While interest and outside spending has not come close to the pitch it did in the recent upstate New York special election, Democrats will have to guard against voter complacency in order to hold onto the seat.
Janice Hahn is the Democratic nominee and a city councilwoman. Craig Huey is the Republican and a direct-mail executive.

At a recent debate things heated up a bit as the discussion turned from issues to experience. Jenkins said that Longville has been in offices for as long as he (Jenkins) has been alive. Longville pointed out that Jenkins has been using cards prepared by a political consultant from Sacramento to answer questions. This has been a mail in ballot and the results should be announced on the 12th.
Longville has been a state assembly member, mayor of Rialto, and on the San Bernardino Valley College board of trustees. Jenkins has served on city Building Commission and Measure Z Oversight Committee. Martin is a businessman.

Recall Election Primaries for 6 State Senate Districts (more information)
