A week after the June Primary Election, results show that I didn’t quite make it on to the Central Committee.
Although, there’s a little less than 18,000 ballots left to count throughout the county, I’m certain to gain more however, whatever remaining ballots are left won’t be enough to flip the results in my favor. It happens. Out of 17 candidates, I squarely ended up in the middle of the pack.
In fact, the final 6th place spot could go to either Clinton Soffer or Scott Rieker with 93 votes separating them.
On the bright side, I am proud of the 7,815 votes I earned — and with the remaining ballots I could end up with over 8,000.
At the end of the day, it’s well over a 40% increase from two years ago, and the most I’ve ever received in a multi-candidate race to serve on any of the Republican Party County Committees I’ve ever served on, or run for. I feel it’s a victory for me.
I’d like to congratulate our party Chairman Tony Krvaric, Lincoln Club’s T.J. Zane, Lynette Williams, Donna Cleary, and Jeannie Foulkrod on their locked-in victories.
Finally, I want to thank everyone out there who did vote for me, and I greatly appreciate your support and the positive messages I received over the last few months. It’s definitely made me consider the potential for success in 2014.
Until then, we’ve got some important local and national races to win this November. As good Republicans, let’s work hard and elect some new leadership for America and San Diego.
