RPV Mayor Endorses 66th Assembly Candidate Craig Huey

Democrat Al Muratsuchi and Republican Craig Huey will face each other in the November election for the 66th Assembly District.

Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor Anthony Misetich has endorsed 66th Assembly District candidate Craig Huey.

Huey, a Republican, will face Democrat Al Muratsuchi in the November election for the Assembly District seat.

"I am pleased to endorse Craig Huey for State Assembly," Misetich said in a statement. "Craig has the experience and vision that are necessary if we are to begin turning California’s economy around and growing jobs in the South Bay. He’s the candidate with the ability to appeal to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. More importantly, he won’t be just another Sacramento politician."

Of the 256,635 voters registered within the 66th District, only 54,334 people cast their ballots in June's primary election. Muratsuchi received 22,225 votes; Huey received 20,939; and Republican Nathan Mintz received 11,170.

"...only 54,334 people cast their ballots in June's primary election." Actually, 67,572 people cast ballots for assembly candidates in this race for the South Bay Assembly District 66 (27,360;26,298;13,914). That is a 71% increase in voter turnout from 4 years ago when only 39,513 people cast votes in the then South Bay Assembly District 53. What is more telling is the unusually high turnout of Independent voters who overwhelming voted for one of the two Republican candidates, just as they did in 2010. Republicans account for 1/3 of the registered voters in this district and won 60% of the vote. Democrats account for 1/3 of the registered voters in this district and the lone Democrat candidate received just 40% of the vote. Albert Muratsuchi shouldn't quit his day job. A liberal Democrat doesn't have a chance in this Assembly District. Don't take my word for it. Election results going back to March of 1996 are available online at the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters website -> http://rrcc.co.la.ca.us/elect/pastrslt.html-ssihttp://rrcc.co.la.ca.us/elect/pastrslt.html-ssi

craig huey is one of the biggest extremists i have met. he is the author of the infamous huey satan letter (google it). he would choose the bible over law and constitution every time. he is not as described the one to work with both republicans and democrats. our government is sick, but huey would only make it far worse, with his esxtreme views.
