Westminster, CA – Today, the Travis Allen for Assembly campaign held a press conference to announce the bi-partisan support of the two Vietnamese primary candidates for the 72nd Assembly District, Republican Dr. Long Pham and Democrat Joe Dovinh.  With former Assemblyman Van Tran having already join the Allen campaign as a Senior Advisor, today’s press conference represents a consolidation of the Vietnamese community behind Travis Allen.

“I have the unique perspective of having been a candidate in this election.  I had the opportunity to get know both candidates and I can tell you without reservation, Travis Allen is the only candidate we can trust to represent our community in Sacramento,” commented Dr. Long Pham.

“Travis Allen is the only candidate that will fight to support small businesses, ensure that our community can send their kids to quality schools, and he will not raise you taxes” continued Dr. Pham

Joe Dovinh added, “I am supporting Travis Allen because he is the candidate that will work to bring everyone together for the betterment of our community and state.” Dovinh continued, “Travis Allen is a consensus builder and his campaign is a perfect example of how Travis Allen can get members of different parties to come together.”

Former Assemblyman Van Tran also added, “I represented a substantial part of what is now the 72nd Assembly District, for the better part of a decade” Tran continued. “I know that as a small business owner, Travis Allen knows the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs in our community.”

“Today, I am honored to have received the support of Dr. Pham and Joe Dovinh,” added Travis Allen.  “Having faced both as candidates in the primary election, I know they both love their community and have distinguished themselves by giving both of their time and financial resources.”  Travis Allen continued, “I look forward to working with both Dr. Pham and Joe Dovinh when I am a member of the State Assembly.  Their advice and guidance will help me in making the right decisions for our community”

Travis Allen is a Certified Financial Planner and the owner of the Orange County-based Wealth Strategies Group. Travis has lived in Huntington Beach for the past two decades.

    Using the totals for the candidates from the Primary…

    Edgar: 18,060
    Allen: 37,692 (Allen + Joe and Long)

    So, unless Edgar has some magic potion that will cause those that voted against him before to somehow now decide to vote for him over those that they had voted for before, this race has pulled away from the station and left Edgar sitting on the platform with over $200K he loaned himself spent for not getting his seat in the Assembly.

    The only question is how many of his endorsements will now jump ship. Michelle Steel is one of the ones to watch closely. If she bails you can send Edgar flowers for his campaign’s grave.

    Nice pick up for Allen.

    I read Moxley’s article on this. Moxley’s ID’s Brandon owers asTroy Edgar’s ex-consultant, but doesn’t inform readers Power’s is Allen’s current consultant. A curious omission by the World’s Greatest Investigative Reporter.

      What evidence to you have that Brandon is Allen’s consultant? I know Allen’s consultant and it is not Brandon. Thus, it appears you are just making things up.
