Mercury News noted that: "Labor allies Xavier Campos and Madison Nguyen were forced into runoffs for council seats they once were expected to win outright."
In the editiorial piece, the Mercury News gave Nguyen an insight into the run-off in November:
"Incumbent Madison Nguyen finished first in District 7 as did former council aide Don Rocha in District 9. But each faces a serious conservative in the fall — Minh Duong and Larry Pegram, respectively. Rocha and Nguyen would both be wise to better clarify their positions on city spending and stake out the moderate ground."
Janet Nguyen (R) is the Chair of the Orange County Board of Supervisor. Orange County is the second largest county in California. Janet is one of the youngest candidates ever elected to the supervisor seat in OC and is a well known Republican elected official within the Vietnamese-American community.
