Enjoying my time with Andy Vidak who stunning win in the special election in #California's 16th State #Senate District #CRP13#cagop13#UrbanGameChangers in #CA the #CRP convention — Vidak becoming the first #Republican senator from the Central Valley district in nearly 20 years — is being closely analyzed by state and national GOP strategists.
What was most impressive about the July 23 result was that a Republican had emerged triumphant in a district with a constituency that is 22.3 percent white and 63.2 percent Hispanic.
At a time when Republican leaders increasingly worry about their appeal to the growing Hispanic-American vote, many are now asking of the 46-year-old Vidak: "How did he do it?"
With all provisional and absentee ballots finally counted days ago, Vidak, a cherry farmer and moderate Republican, rolled up 52.1 percent of the vote against Democrat Leticia Perez, the Kern County supervisor.
