Run off

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:01 am

It looks like we’re heading into a run off between Mia Bonta and Janani Ramanchandran for the AB18 seat vacated by Rob Bonta. And it looks like Mia Bonta has some pretty wide spread supporting, coming in first across the majority of precincts.

I don’t know what is going on in San Leandro but there are two precincts where Steve Republican Slauson came in first place.


  1. Lots of election and court news:

    Supreme Court ruled today that Arizona law banning ballot harvesting and requiring voters to actually vote in their own precinct, is constitutional, clearing way for it to be banned across the nation, and undermining the recent case filed by the DOJ against the new Ga. voting rights law.

    34 Southern Ca. Cities suing state for “grossly” over estimating number of new houses needed(basically double). This lawsuit could affect Alameda’s allotment.

    Bonta’s main contributors are Indian Gaming Casinos-want to know why? Pending ballot initiative controlled by AG Bonta will ask to legalize sports betting. Janani called accepting the contributions “legalized corruption.”

  2. I wish I could muster up enough fucks to give to even cast a vote in this one. Under any normal circumstances I’d vote for the most progressive candidate, but this one has shown incredibly poor judgement by getting in bed with some of Alameda’s worst. And the other one has done some objectionable shit the minute she got onto the school board. I think I’mma skip this one.

  3. I hate to see a run-off I just want it done. I voted for Janani but I okay with Bonta or Vella. Hopefully, they can include the run-off with the recall so we can get them all done at once. I am tired of elections and I hope Republicans get their asses wiped. Arizona is crazy with the audit and now Pennisvania, voter restrictions, not being able to give someone a snack or water while in line. And after that, we begin primaries for 2022.

  4. Mia bontas endorsements are tainted by Rob bonta bootlickers trying to ride those coattails.
