Voting 2008 in Venice Beach

From the LA Times:

When Hahn, 59, and Huey, 61, won spots on the runoff ballot, most observers predicted Hahn would not have a hard time winning the race to replace Harman, a Venice Democrat who resigned in February. Democrats hold an 18-point registration edge in the district, and observers said Huey’s socially conservative views — he opposes abortion and gay marriage, for example — were out of step with the district’s moderate voting patterns.

But Huey pumped nearly $800,000 of his own money into his campaign and rallied “tea party” activists and other conservatives to help spread his cut-government-spending, grow-jobs message. Hahn has raised more than $1 million and enlisted support from labor, environmental groups, women’s organizations and Democratic Party leaders.
