Jimmy Nguyen for District 7 City Council in 2014?

With the campaign heading into the final two months,  Jimmy Nguyen's lack of campaigning experience is glaring.   Many of his supporters are concerning about his efforts and his inability to raise money.  

He tries his best to rally the Viet - American community to help him with money.  His all out support of  the convicted felon Ly Tong has gained him admiration of  the extreme anti-communist crowd but has hurt him with the more main stream Viet-American voters. 

The whisper among his Viet-American supporters is that this election is good for Jimmy to get some public exposure so that he can run for District 7 to replace Madison Nguyen in 2014.  This is something that has crossed his mind no doubt.   

District 7 is wide open in 2014 with 35% of the voting block is Viet-American.   A candidate like Jimmy Nguyen has a very high chance of winning.  Of course, Cam Van Le, a schoold board member, is also thinking very outloud about running for the seat.   She is actively scoping out who is running for the seat.   

LSI cannot wait till 2014 to see the contest in District 7 to replace Madison Nguyen.    Of course, Nguyen has made it known in the Viet-American community that she is running for mayor in 2014. 

She hopes to sneak in between two white male candidates who are rumored to be in the running also - Dave Cortese and our dear friend Sam Liccardo.   She is hoping for the female votes and some of the Viet-American votes.   Would it be enough to get her into the runoff?
