More CA Races: Honda, Nguyen

According to CNN projections today, Mike Honda of California 15 was easily re-elected with 72% vs. 28% of the vote for Republican challenger Raymond Chukwu.

In Orange County, Tan Nguyen lost his House race against incumbent Democrat Loretta Sanchez (California 47). Nguyen was set off track after allegations that a mailing intimidating Latino voters was connected to his campaign.

Nguyen had previously made an unsuccessful primary attempt to run for the 46th congressional district in 2004, and his campaign this year had little backing from the Republican party.
