LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement regarding the November election:
“Tonight, we not only celebrate a Democratic victory, we celebrate the voters’ victory in shunning the Republicans’ attempt to buy California’s Governorship and U.S. Senate seat. We celebrate California’s victory in taking the first step to rebuilding California after seven years of failed Republican Governorship. We celebrate California’s victory in sending a fighter who has time and again stood up for all Californians back to Washington.
“Despite the Republicans spending more than a quarter-billion dollars, the voters of this great State have demonstrated that they would not be fooled and that their votes could not be bought. The values of the Democratic Party are those of the majority of Californians – and the voters have spoken loud and clear with the resounding Democratic victory tonight.
“On behalf of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, I congratulate Senator Barbara Boxer and Governor-elect Jerry Brown. We look forward to working with these outstanding individuals to put California back on track.”
