PECG and the PECG PAC had excellent June primary election results. In total, PECG took a position in 83 statewide, Senate, Assembly and statewide ballot measure campaigns. A PECG-endorsed candidate or ballot measure prevailed in 82 of those races.
Statewide Offices: PECG-endorsed candidates advanced to November in 8 or 9 races. PECG made a dual endorsement in the Governor and Attorney General races. Senator Cathleen Galgiani finished third in the Board of Equalization District 2 race and was the only PECG-endorsed canddiate not to move on. She will remain in the Senate until 2020.
Ballot Measures: PECG endorsed Propositions 68 and 69. Both passed easily on Tuesday.
Legislative Races: PECG’s candidate moves on to the fall election in 72 of 72 races, including in 11 out of 11 campaigns for open legislative seats. On a sadder note, the recall of Senator Josh Newman was unfortunately successful, with 60 percent voting in favor. Former Assembly Member Ling Ling Chang was the top vote-getter in the election to replacement and will take office soon.
