Cindy Chavez overcame the Munger/Mercury/Metro/Mama Alvarado Machine yesterday to trounce GOP Darling Teresa Alvarado by double digits. Looking at the ROV precinct map shows the depth of support for Laborista Chavez.
The precinct returns show Alvarado winning two precincts 3 votes to 0 and another where she won 6 votes to 2, otherwise the sea of blue would be bigger. In several precincts the GOP Darling ran third, losing to Scott Pham and Chavez.
The Merc’s Tracy Seipel continues to do all she can to help Alvarado by tossing Ron Gonzales into the mix in her wrap up of the race. For a more balanced look at yesterday’s race try KTVU-2 or NBC Bay Area.
SJ Inside reports that Labor talking head Stacey Hendler needs a reporter etiquette class as her Chernobyl meltdowns in dealing with the Metro continue.
SJI also breaks new ground (are you reading Tracy) by reporting that Alvarado is now on her 3rd campaign manager, in just three months. The first was Dem used to be Peter Allen, then the GOP’s Karen Martinez and now ESUHSD’s Magdalena Carrasco. Nothing like a steady hand at the helm.
