Jimmy Nguyen Lost by 10%

Unexpectedly,  Jimm Nguyen's  young political fortune ended for now at the hand of Rose Herrera.   He lost by 10% point in a bitterly fought campaign pitting Labor Unions against Rose Herrera.  

Jimmy Nguyen was an unknown in his own Vietnamese-American community as well as in the community-at-large.  He bursted into the scene as an opportunist, hoping that he could be a pawn for the proxy battle between Chuck Reed and Dave Cortese and his labor backing.   His inexperience, and limited in-depth knowledge of issues due to lack of participation in the community where he resides and immature campaign staff were shown throughout the campaign

A more mature candidate could have taken Herrera to the task.  Live and learn.
