Two weeks ago at the Region 21 pre-endorsement caucus, Marty Block came up two votes short of the 70% required for the Democratic Party endorsement in the 78th Assembly race. In a matter of hours, the Region 21 caucus will be meeting at CDP Convention in San Jose to vote again for the Democratic Party endorsement in the 78th Assembly race. This time threshold for endorsement is only 60%. It will be interesting to see if Marty can get the endorsement this time.
Also, on the agenda at the Region 21 caucus, will be the endorsement in the 53rd Congressional race, between incumbent Susan Davis and challenger Mike Copass. Congresswoman Davis easily won the endorsement two weeks ago, but because of a snafu on the part of the CDP, enough delegates challenged the results to force another vote at the convention.
