Commenting on the Dustin Steiner v. Brian Maienschein GOP primary in AD 77, Rostra regulars Erik and Alger wondered if a credible Democrat would run here. If not, the two Republicans could battle all the way to November. Well, the Secretary of State’s website shows a credible Democrat is running: Ruben Hernandez. He has an active website as well, and resides in the redrawn 77th State Assembly seat. (That’s Nathan Fletcher’s district, called the 75th when he won it in November, 2010.)
If Mr. Hernandez is the sole candidate with “Democrat” next to his name on the June 2012 primary election ballot, he has a significant chance of making the Fall runoff.
