H/T to OC Register Reporter Martin Wisckol for the tip that in Sacramento Superior Court today, the judge ruled that Democratic Supervisor Lou Correa will be able to stay on the ballot in his quest to be the State Senator in the 34th District in Central Orange County. Of course Correa will first have to best Assemblyman Tom Umberg in the primary, and then face Assemblywoman Lynn Daucher in the general election.
Umberg had challenged Correa’s filing as he had turned in substantially more signatures to qualify than you are supposed to, apparently. You can read what Mike Houston said here on this last week, and what Dana Reed said here last week.
I’m sure we’ll see more on this in the Register tomorrow, and in on the Register’s "Total Buzz Blog" (see it under Blog Roll above).
