Oh Doctor ! …… What a 9th Inning rally Juan Vargas is putting on right now in the 40th State Senate district.
Today Vargas gained 54 more votes on Mary Salas in the San Diego County update (288 to 234). When added to totals in Imperial and Riverside counties, that cuts Ms. Salas’ overall lead district-wide to just 96 votes. (There were no updates in the other 2 counties today.)
Overall figures for this three-county contest as of June 23rd:
…. Mary Salas… 23,806…..Juan Vargas….23,710.
A possible Lesson in this evolving story? Never underestimate a Jesuit-trained opponent (which Mr. Vargas is). Not for nothing are the Jesuits affectionately called the Marine Corps of the Catholic Church !
