Brownley Increases Lead Over Gorell as Ballot Counting Continues in CA-26
Today, the Ventura County Registrar of Voters released the first vote update since election night in California’s 26th Congressional District. Brownley picked up an additional 493 votes, nearly doubling her overall lead. Following today’s update, Julia Brownley for Congress spokeswoman Rachel Estrada released the following statement:
“The process is moving forward and the results are coming in as expected. Congresswoman Brownley won the precinct vote, the vote by mail vote, and today’s vote update. While there are still votes to be counted, we feel positive about the trend, as late-counted ballots in California traditionally favor Democrats. With today’s update, we are confident that Julia Brownley will continue serving as Ventura County’s congresswoman.”
Happy early St. Patrick’s Day from Ventura! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to join the Elks Lodge in their 29th annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.
It was wonderful to see so many Ventura County residents turn out for the Planned Parenthood rally last week. There is no doubt that President Trump and the Republicans are hellbent on taking away a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions and to take back critical protections in current healthcare legislation. Our voices are being heard. We must continue to speak out.
