On Hannah-Beth Jackson's website it has a section called "Know the 19th senate district" which reminds me of Steven Colbert's ongoing series called "Better know a district". The seat ( currently held by Tom McClintock R-Many places) that Hannah-Beth Jackson and Tony Strickland are running for is huge. It stretches across from deep into Santa Barbara through most of Ventura County and into Los Angeles County.
I mention this because I received an email from the Democratic Club of Santa Clarita about some upcoming events for Hannah-Beth Jackson in that part of the district. Before I posted them I didn't know for sure if it was an out of the area fundraiser or not because it was emailed to me by a Democratic group from the San Fernando Valley.
This district has a higher population than about 5 states.
For the candidates to communicate with many of these voters across multiple media markets they will need an energized group of supporters, an organized press office that takes advantage of earned media, the ability to make sure a story that helps them spins across several newspapers or forms of media, and last but not least a very large sum of money.
As a citizen of Simi Valley I am excited to see an election that will be generating this amount of light and heat locally.
If you see any event from any of the candidates that I haven't listed please send it in. I post events from the different candidates in many campaigns. If you don't see something from a candidate it is because it isn't being sent in.
