The only problem is that County Supervisor Chair Janet Nguyen was not informed and she is up to now has not plan to neither do any press conference with Van Tran nor alone calling a pressing conference for Van Tran
Janet Nguyen is being forced by Republican leaders into endorsing Van Tran. She needs their money for her campaign in 2012. She is well recognized in D47 with the Vietnamese-American voters as well as mainstream voters. Of course she has much higher favorable rating than Van Tran.
Van Tran has a 39% unfavorable rating in D47. Van Tran is forcing her hand with his dirty politics, basically blackmail her into endorsing him
However, this kind of game might back fire with the voters, especially with Vietnamese-American voters who will make up about 12% of the votes in November. They either vote against Van Tran or don't go to vote for he brings such bad taste in their mouth.
