June 2014 Organizational Endorsements Scorecard
Posted by Chris Emami on June 5, 2014
Chris Nguyen posted a humongous grid of endorsements that broke down all the major organizations and what candidates they endorsed for non-partisan offices in Orange County. You can take a look at his humongous grid of endorsements here. As a follow-up I have done the math on how the endorsed candidates fared in the Tuesday election and have given credit to an organization for endorsing a candidate that either won outright or advanced to the November election.
Here is a guide to the abbreviations: OC GOP = Republican Party of Orange County, DPOC = Democratic Party of Orange County, CRA = California Republican Assembly, HJTA = Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, CWLA = California Women’s Leadership Association, OC Tax = Orange County Taxpayers Association, OCBC = Orange County Business Council, and CTA = California Teachers Association.
|OC GOP||DPOC||OC Register||Lincoln Club||Atlas PAC||CRA||Family Action PAC||HJTA||CWLA||OC Tax||OCBC||CTA||OC Labor Federation||Evolve||Women in Leadership||Planned Parenthood|
|# of Winners||10||1||13||9||8||10||5||5||7||11||2||1||3||0||1||1|
|# of Losers||2||6||4||3||2||2||1||0||0||1||2||1||4||2||1||2|
Anybody that got 75% and higher can be considered an organization with a valuable endorsement but the big winners from this election cycle were the California Women’s Leadership Association (Orange County Chapter) and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association both of which managed to endorse no losers.
