Craig Huey—California District 36 Special Congressional Election


“Pro-Abortion Group Backs Janice Hahn for California Election

Fresh off an upset victory in a special election in New York’s 26th district, the pro-abortion group EMILY’s List is already gearing up to send another pro-abortion extremist to Washington.

Yesterday, the organization announced their endorsement of Democrat Janice Hahn for the special election in California’s 36th District. Hahn is running against pro-life Republican Craig Huey to replace pro-abortion Rep. Jane Harman (D) who resigned in February to head the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

While the district trends blue, Huey may be able to pull off an upset and flip the seat for Republicans. In the initial balloting with multiple candidates, Huey came in a close second to Hahn with 22.6%. Despite being the Democratic favorite in a firmly blue district, Hahn only garnered 24% of the vote. The two candidates with the most votes move on to face each other in the special election.

Jimmy Camp from the Huey campaign told conservative news source Human Events that despite Democrats outnumbering Republicans in party affiliation by a margin of 45% to 27%, ‘another 20% of registered voters are ‘Decline to State’ [California ’s version of unaffiliated voters]. They really responded to Craig’s message.’

Huey’s strong showing has pushed EMILY’s List to enter the race. Along with their endorsement of his opponent today, the group lambasted Huey and claimed, ‘Republican self-funder Craig Huey would add ranks to a party currently waging war on American women and families and attempting to end Medicare as we know it.’ (A completely off base assertion considering their candidate Janice Hahn supports both abortion-on-demand, which is opposed by a majority of American women, and Obamacare, which would ration care to the elderly and those with disabilities.)

Hahn has also received the backing of pro-abortion California Governor Jerry Brown and the infamously pro-abortion House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.”


“A special run-off election for the 36th Congressional District seat to be held on Tuesday, July 12, 2011. If you live in Del Aire, El Segundo, Hermosa Beach, Lennox, Lomita, Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach, Marina del Rey, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Torrance, Venice, West Carson or Wilmington, you may be able to vote in this election.

Craig Huey shocks media and career politicians in race for California’s 36th Congressional District. Grassroots candidate’s economic message reverberates universally with Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents.

They said it couldn’t be done! The media, political pundits and powerful career politicians dismissed Craig’s campaign as a non-threat.

But thanks to the voters and to many volunteers, Craig shattered conventional wisdom and won a strong second place victory with 22.2% of the vote, just behind Janice Hahn with 24.6% and ahead of Debra Bowen with 21%.

Frankly, every so-called expert had this race locked-up between the Los Angeles City Councilwoman (Hahn) and California’s Secretary of State (Bowen). The media never saw us as a contender.

But when the final ballots were counted, they couldn’t believe the results. Their headlines read…

‘Major upset’—Los Angeles Times

‘Dark horse’—National Public Radio

‘Confounded expectations’—Huffington Post

This major upset now has Craig in a run-off election Tuesday, July 12, against career politician Janice Hahn and her political machine—fueled by over a million dollars in special interest money.

Still, we know our message is stronger.

Craig isn’t offering the same empty and failed answers that are proposed by the same career politicians. Instead, Craig offers real-world experience, having created hundreds of jobs for employees and business clients. And his strong economic message reverberates universally with all Americans—Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Independents.

This message includes …

1) Stopping the out-of-control government spending

2) Stopping the $1.6 trillion deficit and $14.3 trillion national debt

3) Creating new jobs in the private sector

4) Stopping the rising prices created by bad government policy

On July 12, let’s again send a loud and clear message to Congress, the media and the career politicians that we won’t settle for the same old failed solutions. Vote Craig Huey for Congress.”
