Republican Dominance in Fresno Continues

The Central Valley is a key swing region of our state, and Republicans continue to perform well here. Mike Der Manouel provides this report from Fresno County:

The Lincoln Club of Fresno County enjoyed a clean sweep of its endorsed candidates for Fresno City Council on Tuesday, with each of the candidates gaining over 65% of the vote. The council thus take a sharp tack to the right. Endorsed candidate for Mayor Jerry Duncan finished third behind newcomer Ashley Swearengin and Council Member Henry T. Perea. Swearengin is a Republican and the LC will likely start negotiating with her over an endorsement very soon.

Stalwart conservative Debbie Poochigian was also elected to the County Board of Supervisors in a dogfight with Clovis Councilman Nathan Magsig. The Lincoln Club was neutral in that race.
