Christina Avalos, Make Up Your #@%$ Mind on What You’re Running For!

Posted by Chris Nguyen on February 20, 2012

Loretta Sanchez, Ed Royce, Don Wagner

Christina Avalos's Opponents - From Just the 2012 Elections

In honor of Presidents’ Day, I’m posting on someone who’s now run for office more times than either George W. Bush or Barack Obama.

Christina Avalos needs to make up her mind on what she’s running for.  In the span of two months, the Orange Democrat has pulled signature-in-lieu petitions for three different offices.

On December 30, Avalos pulled the signature-in-lieu petitions for the 46th Congressional District (her home district) to run against incumbent Loretta Sanchez.

Then on January 20, Avalos pulled the signature-in-lieu petitions to run for the 39th Congressional District against incumbent Ed Royce.

Then on February 17, Avalos pulled the signature-in-lieu petitions to run for the 68th Assembly District (her home district) to run against incumbent Don Wagner.

Maybe she’ll pull for U.S. Senate in March to run against incumbent Dianne Feinstein.

According to the great and comprehensive elections database at JoinCalifornia.com, perennial candidate Avalos ran against Chris Cox in 1998 and Ed Royce in 2002, 2008, and 2010.  In 2004, she lost the primary to fellow Democrat J. Tilman Williams, who went on to lose to Royce.  In 2006, she lost the primary to fellow Democrat Florice Orea Hoffman.  Cox won 67% of the vote in 1998, and Royce won no less than 63% of the vote in each of these five elections.  I have no idea what happened in 2000 when Avalos didn’t appear to run for anything.

On behalf of the people of Orange County: Christina Avalos, make up your #@%$ mind on what you’re running for!

  1. […] finally made up her mind on what office she will be running for. After what clearly took a great deal of thought and pondering she decided to turn in her “Sigs in Lieu” for the 68th Assembly District against Don […]

  2. Hilarious. Christina had already made up her mind when she filed for AD-68. She originally filed for CD-46 based on a mistaken rumor about Loretta, and when she was set straight she moved to aiming for CD-39. When Jay Chen got into that race and looked hard to top, she moved to AD-68, where she has stayed. How is that so complicated?
