A big pickup for Das Williams

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

The state Democratic Party over the weekend gave Santa Barbara City Councilman Das Williams a big boost in his contest with businesswoman and environmental activist Susan Jordan for the party's nomination in the 35th Assembly District.

The state party affirmed the decision of local Democratis to endorse Williams in the race, and the hurdle to attain such an endorsement is quite high -- 60 percent support from voting delegates. The endorsement means that Williams' name will appear on any pre-primary mail sent by the party and also that Williams can bill himself as party-endorsed candidate.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
