POOR RICHARDSON’S ALMANAC: IN TODAY’S ENTRY, GARAMENDI ENDORSES JANICE HAHNBy Dave Wielenga
Poor Richardson’s Almanac—the ever-expanding catalogue of Greater Long Beach-area Congresswoman Laura Richardson’s never-ending woes—received its latest entry from RollCall.com, where Kyle Trygstad reports:
Congressman John Garamendi, a Democrat from a Northern California district, has announced his support for Janice Hahn in her attempt to win the congressional seat that Richardson currently occupies. It is the second endorsement Hahn has received from a member of congress, following the support she received early in her campaign from Grace Neapolitano. unseat fin her race for ttoday backed Hahn over fellow Rep. Laura Richardson, saying Hahn “hit the ground running” after her July special election victory.
Garamendi’s endorsement comes with the observation that Hahn ’s campaign “hit the ground running” last July—and was politic enough not to mention how such energy compares with the negative vibes that swirl around Richardson like shrieking demons.
“Already in her few months since being sworn in to the House, she’s been a leader and has stood up to protect the rights of working people and women’s rights,” Garamendi said in a statement. “At the same time, she’s been able to further the work that she did while on the L.A. City Council surrounding issues that involve the Port of Los Angeles.”
