ACSS Endorsed Candidates – Election Results November 2016

ACSS Legislative Analyst Ted Toppin describes the results of the election in regards to ACSS-Endorsed Candidates. Overall, our ACSS-Endorsed Candidates had a tremendous amount of success.

For ACSS, the state election results were pretty spectacular. The ACSS-endorsed legislative candidate won in 80 of the 82 races in which ACSS took a position. The one ACSS-supported ballot measure – Proposition 55 (Tax Extension for Education) – passed easily.

In the Assembly, the ACSS candidate won in 63 races and lost in two. In contested open seat contests, ACSS was 7-0, including wins in hard fought victories by Jordan Cunningham (R-Central Coast) in AD 35, Raul Bocanegra (D-San Fernando Valley) in AD 39, and Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) in AD 66.

The two losses were those of incumbent legislators facing serious challenges. In AD 47, incumbent Democrat Cheryl Brown (San Bernardino) lost a tight race to a challenger from her own party who accused her of not acting like a Democrat. In AD 60, ACSS- endorsed Asm. Eric Linder (R-Corona) lost to a Democrat in a suburban Riverside County seat that increasingly votes Democratic.

The 17 state Senate candidates endorsed by ACSS all prevailed. In open seat races, ACSS was 7-0. This includes races in which the ACSS Democratic candidate had to beat another Democrat: Bill Dodd in SD 3 (Napa), Nancy Skinner in SD 9 (East Bay), and Steven Bradford in SD 35 (Gardena). In what were considered three of the bigger partisan Senate face-offs, the ACSS candidate won in each: Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) in SD 21, Anthony Portantino (D-Pasadena) in SD 25, and Henry Stern (D-Thousand Oaks) in SD 27.

Complete election results for ACSS-endorsed candidates are below. Open seat candidates are in bold.
