UPDATED: In the hotly contested San Francisco Assembly District 17 race, David Chiu has issued this statement on Facebook that his opponent, David Campos, has conceded.
Close race between two colleagues that got nasty. But that’s politics.
Nov.5: People hate Congress, but they like their guy. How else do you describe the way Democratic Incumbent Mike Honda in CA-17 was able to beat back Ro Khanna, the disruptive Democrat who failed despite big money and endorsements.
Goes to show you, avuncular beats upstart. In politics, style counts for something.
But Honda’s victory is not enough to make Nancy Pelosi happy. She’s still in the minority, but even deeper in the hole now.
It rained at the Giants parade, and on Tuesday it poured. Two more years of political smiles.
Last week she had the Senate, now all she has is a lame duck president to lean on.
And an orange rally rag to remind her what it feels like to be a World Champion.
