I also update my original “Election 2014” post, but highlight yesterday’s elections below.
I congratulate Mike Honda and Ami Bera for finishing in 1st place in their primaries for Congress! Ted Lieu also successfully made it to the general election in his important race to replace Rep. Henry Waxman. We also congratulate our official endorsees who lost hard-fought races, Swati Dandekar for Congress in Iowa and Suja Lowenthal for CA State Assembly. They’ve made their communities a better place by stimulating dialog.
Our other endorsed candidates all also did great:
- U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, candidate for U.S. Senate (HI) – vote Aug 9
- U.S. Representative Judy Chu (CA-27) – won!
- U.S. Representative Mark Takano (CA-41) – won!
- U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard (HI-2) – vote Aug 9
- U.S. Representative Tammy Duckworth (IL-8) – won Mar 8
