Long Pham and Dovinh Fighting for Second Place

The election results are slowly pouring in but so far we have the following numbers:






MEMBER OF THE STATE ASSEMBLY 72nd District
Completed Precincts: 149 of 320

Vote Count Percentage
TROY EDGAR 10,578 28.2%
JOE DOVINH 7,558 20.1%
LONG PHAM 7,410 19.7%
TRAVIS ALLEN 6,759 18.0%
ALBERT AYALA 5,219 13.9%




Chances are good that Joe Dovinh (D) will be in the run-off against Troy Edgar (R).  But we will have to wait and see the final counts.   Another disappointed lost to perennial loser, Long Pham.  Since this is a heavily Republican district, Dovinh has a very small chance in the run-off even though this is stronghold of Vietnamese-American voters.  

LSI can see Ta Duc Tri or Tyler (Diep) Truong to go for this seat in 2018.


The latest update with 3/4 of the precincts counted,  Joe Dovinh is now trailing Travis Allen by a small margin. 

MEMBER OF THE STATE ASSEMBLY 72nd District
Completed Precincts: 294 of 320

Vote Count Percentage
TROY EDGAR 13,226 28.4%
TRAVIS ALLEN 9,132 19.6%
JOE DOVINH 9,085 19.5%
LONG PHAM 8,610 18.5%
ALBERT AYALA 6,547 14.0%

Do you consider this widescale disenfranchisement of Viet voters to be a scandal? Is it one worth writing about?
